Like Shields, Naish was Irish, too. Although I think that was the one ethnicity he never played in a long career of "ethnics".

Of course, to baby-boomer, Creature-Features monster kids, Naish's two bookend performances were as the hunchback in "House of Frankenstein," and, more than 25 years later, the mad doctor in "Dracula Vs. Frankenstein."

But actually, my fave on that Fox set was "Dragonwyck." Gorgeous photography, good score and a Gothic setting for that most peculiar Fox-studio team, Gene Tierney and Vincent Price. (Not to mention the appearance of "Colossal Man" Glenn Langan, as the forgettable hero.)

The much-underrated Harry Lachman, like his contemporary Roy William Neill, directed some very stylish B movies and has been unjustly forgotten.
