31 Days of Halloween - Day 4 - Movie 1

In Bluebeard (1944), John Carradine is suave and sinister as a puppeteer and painter who strangles to death the women who model for him. Edgar G. Ulmer brings some style and atmosphere to this poverty row horror-mystery, elevating it to a decent viewing experience. The featured scenes with the marionettes are pretty impressive and made me wish that this type of street entertainment was still common.
