THE PROFESSOR (1958 U.S.) D/W: TOM McCAIN
Apparently this failed b/w tv pilot (it runs 27 mins.) was made by spook show operators in Dayton, Ohio. It`s basically a very talky tale of scientists coming to terms with the fact that a missing scientist friend may indeed be a dangerous werewolf on the prowl (a very briefly seen Doug Hobart, who was in DEATH CURSE OF TARTU and did run a spook show for may years). Other characters include a journalist and communist spies with funny accents. Of limited interest i guess, with some pretty ripe acting and dialogue, but i kinda enjoyed it. Sinister Cinema have it on an interesting DVD double-bill with other failed pilot TALES OF FRANKENSTEIN.

My favourite Doug Hobart role, STING OF DEATH
