ESCAPE IN THE FOG
1945, Sony Repertory, 65 min, USA, Dir: Budd Boetticher

An army nurse (Nina Foch) is terrified by a fog-shrouded dream in which she witnesses a trio of men committing murder on the Golden Gate Bridge. Good thing it’s all a dream … until the victim asks her out on a date! Settle in with some popcorn for lots of old-time B-movie skullduggery. Director Boetticher, who’d go on to direct some of the greatest Westerns ever, rides briskly over plot holes, camouflages lapses in logic with loads of atmosphere, and makes the most of Nina Foch’s distinctive appeal.

DRACULA’S DAUGHTER
1936, Universal, 71 min, USA, Dir: Lambert Hillyer

Dracula’s tormented daughter, Countess Marya (Gloria Holden), longs to escape the bloodsucking curse visited on her by her father in this haunting sequel to the Bela Lugosi original. But her efforts to do so prove futile as she stalks young women and attempts to seduce Dr. Van Helsing’s colleague, Dr. Garth (Otto Kruger), away from the realm of the living. A surprisingly effective little chiller with a good cast that also includes Edward Van Sloan, Marguerite Churchill and Irving Pichel.
