Little Bela to Go See

At terror they're swell and endearing
Their pairing fans welcome with cheering
Though on posters he's pasted,
Here Lugosi is wasted
She's just scared because Bela keeps leering.

Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi get top billing in Black Friday (Arthur Lubin; 1940). However, when Karloff decided to switch leads, Lugosi lost a starring role, and was given a small, thankless part as a gangster. Title by our go-to guy, Donald B. Benson.
