Joe Dante on

You’ll Find Out

Released 1940
Distributor RKO Radio Pictures

Worlds collide in this 1940 musical-comedy-horror film directed by David Butler (a Hollywood vet best known for breezy low-budget fare like Road to Morocco) but it’s up to the audience to decide who’s scarier… co-stars Boris Karloff, Peter Lorre and Bela Lugosi or bandleader Kay Kyser and his Kollege of Musical Knowledge. To their credit Karloff and crew retain their dignity even when faced with Kyser’s right-hand stooge, Ish Kabibble, a half-wit coronet player about whom the phrase “acquired taste” was invented.
