The Classic Horrors Club Podcast EP 57: George Zucco's Secret
This month we return to a classic horror profile with the star of Dr. Renault's Secret (1942), Fog Island (1945), and Lured (1947), George Zucco. Known as a "spellbinder" on stage and "one-take Zucco" on screen, George Zucco carried a magnificent presence, but was always a gentleman.
Although he was a neighbor of Lionel Atwill, they didn't share the same social life. Nevertheless, the author of Hollywood Babylon II claimed Zucco's final days were just as scandalous. What really happened? Jeff and Richard will set the story straight (with a little help from printed reference materials called, "books.")
We also invite you to watch our companion episode with highlights, bonus features, and outtakes on our YouTube channel. If you like what you hear, you're going to love what you see! Check it out and give us some feedback... both on the podcast and the video.
