Wanted: Undead or Alive?

In a show about criminal rats,
Fast dough, faster women and gats,
Lugosi's adrift
With lowlifes and grift
And the going gets grim without bats.

Béla Lugosi plays mobster Eric Marnay in Black Friday (Arthur Lubin; 1940). With Edmund MacDonald (right). Title by David Cairns, who never leaves us wanting.
