this is a black and white film. it is a spoof of murder mysteries in gothic circumstances. it stars Bela Lugosi, as the butler; Jack Haley as one of the family; Lyle Talbot, as a personage of interest. Lugosi goes around pushing coffee on everyone he encounters. "Drip or Percolated" is the running joke. Don't be scared of black and white. Less to be distracted by. There is value, also, in the historical difference of eras in film making. Note the static camera. Note the importance of pre-noir lighting, shades, shadows, etc. Film watching can be an active experience.
