This winter and spring, join film historian Eric Grayson as he presents “Fallen Stars,” a film series featuring actors who were ostracized from Hollywood.
The Vampire Bat (1933) Featuring Lionel Atwill
When the villagers of Klineschloss start dying of blood loss, the town fathers suspect a resurgence of vampirism. While police inspector Karl remains skeptical, scientist Dr. von Niemann cares for the vampire’s victims one by one, and suspicion falls on simple-minded Herman Gleib because of his fondness for bats. A blood-thirsty mob hounds Gleib to his death, but the vampire attacks don’t stop.
A top British actor, Atwill had been cast as leads through the 1930s. He had a reputation for holding wild parties, one of which resulted in Atwill being arrested and shunned from mainstream Hollywood.
