Character Actor Harry Cording in THE BLACK CAT (1934) with Karloff & Lugosi
The Black Cat is a 1934 American Pre-Code horror film directed by Edgar G. Ulmer and starring Boris Karloff and Béla Lugosi. The picture was the first of eight movies (six of which were produced by Universal) to pair the two iconic actors. It became Universal Pictures' biggest box office hit of the year, and was one of the first movies with an almost continuous music score. Lugosi also appeared in the 1941 film with the same title. The Black Cat is considered by many to be the one that created and popularized the psychological horror subgenre, emphasising on atmosphere, eerie sounds, the darker side of the human psyche, and emotions like fear and guilt to deliver its scares, something that was not used in the horror genre.
Character Actor Harry Cording appears as Thamal, the servant.
