Vincent Price's The Bat Restored For The First Time In HD From The Film Chest On Nov. 12

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph Tribbey
Actor, writer and director Crane Wilbur was noted for his terrific screenplays, House of Wax (1953), He Walked by Night (1948), The Phenix City Story (1955), to name just a few.   

He had been around forever (beginning at the birth of film during the early silent) — as either an actor, a director or a scripter — but late in his career (1959) he teamed with Vincent Price in a reworking of the 1926 Avery Hopwood and Mary Roberts Rinehart stage play, The Bat.   The result: an iconic haunted house classic!

Word arrived this week that the Film Chest has completed a fully restored (in HD) version of The Bat from the original 35mm film elements … the DVD will be available for collector’s to own on Nov. 12.   Start counting the days!
