Black Friday Feeling

Bela isn't cut out for the mob
He can't chisel or flout rules or rob
In mad science, as vamp,
He's a lion, the champ
In this biz he's a doubtful old slob.

Black Friday (Arthur Lubin; 1940): Béla Lugosi was originally cast as the brain-swapping scientist, but when Boris Karloff decided to switch roles, Lugosi was given the secondary part of a gangster. Pictured with Lugosi are Raymond Bailey and Stanley Ridges.
