Trailers from Hell: Joe Dante on 'Black Friday,' Starring Boris Karloff as a Brainy Evil Scientist

Brains on Ice! week concludes at Trailers from Hell with director and TFH creator Joe Dante introducing 1940 Boris Karloff starrer “Black Friday.” 

More brain games from screenwriter Curt Siodmak, this time
involving Boris Karloff as an ethically-challenged scientist who transfers the
grey matter of a brutal gangster into the skull of timid professor Stanley
Ridges. Karloff and Lugosi are top-billed but the velvet-toned Ridges, an
underrated vet who refined his craft on the English stage, turns in a memorable
dual-edged performance as the gentle soul who suffers through a series of
Hyde-like transformations.
