Pre-Code Horror Released On This Day

The Vampire Bat, an independent horror film of the pre-code years in the early 1930's,  put into wide release today 85 years ago today.  It features my favorite pre-code horror duo of scream queen Fay Wray and perennial horror menace Lionel Atwill, featuring relative newcomer Melvyn Douglas.  It is now currently in the public domain.  The film is on several YouTube channels, the best copy of which can be found here.
