The Bela Prompter

Can a corpse spin a yarn, tell a plot?
It seems warped, purest blarney, a blot
To perform exposition
Needs a warmer condition
If you're torpid you'll tarnish and rot.

David Cairns

Molly Lamont has been Scared to Death (Christy Cabanne; 1947), but narrates the story anyway. Bela Lugosi is top-billed. Title by always prompt Donald B. Benson.
