The Bat Lobby Card
The Bat (1959) is a fun movie that doesn’t take itself too seriously. Is it a “scary” film? Not by any stretch of the imagination (unless you’re 3-1/2), but it is a hoot.
The film stars Vincent Price, Agnes Moorehead, Lenita Lane (excellent with Agnes Moorehead), Gavin Gordon, Darla Hood (yes, that Darla.. you will recognize her IMMEDIATELY as Alfalfa’s buddy), and the ridiculously beautiful Elaine Edwards.
Check this one out when you get a chance. The best things about it are Vincent Price (always worth the Price of admission), the camaraderie between Moorehead and Lane, and the sight of Darla’s sweet little face on a beautifully filled out female figure!
Surprisingly, you can find The Bat on DVD on Amazon. I say “surprisingly” because there have been a lot of great “off the beaten track” old movies I can’t find on dvd. I plan to take advantage of this one being available and adding it to my Vincent Price collection!
