Slack Friday

With a range that is...well, isn't vast,
As a gangster poor Bela's miscast
Out of place as a tough
He's a waste in this stuff
It's with fangs he excels and will last.

Béla Lugosi plays mobster Eric Marnay in Black Friday (Arthur Lubin; 1940). Left to right: Lugosi, Paul Fix, Edmund MacDonald, and Raymond Bailey. Fix later played the marshal on The Rifleman, MacDonald picked up a hitcher in Detour, and Bailey ran a bank on The Beverly Hillbillies.
