Dr. Renault’s Secret
Mad doctor George Zucco is at it again, this time turning an ape into a (very unhappy) J. Carrol Naish. This forgotten Fox B-picture is as good-looking as any of their A’s and at a brisk 58 minutes it’s a lot of lurid fun. The final film of intermittently stylish director Harry Lachman.
