I've seen NIGHT CLUB LADY in a nice print "on the big screen" a few times over the years, so there's no doubt there certainly is at least one excellent print.

 

It's interesting that CIRCUS QUEEN MURDER used to be the impossible one to find a copy of, while NIGHT CLUB LADY seemed to commonly be "out there". But now that seems reversed. Since TCM has shown CIRCUS QUEEN MURDER now the other one seems to be the one people are looking for.

One in particular that I would like to see is THIS THING CALLED LOVE with Melvyn Douglas and Rosalind Russell from 1941. I want to see what the Catholic Legion of Decency got all upset about back then. Remember Rosalind Russell was supposed to be a devout Catholic.

I'm surprised Lugosi's NIGHT OF TERROR (1933) hasn't shown up on TCM.

 

Is there a specific reason your surprised that TCM hasn't shown Night of Terror?   I ask only because TCM tends to not feature early Columbia films or the films of Lugosi.    So I wonder why anyone would expect TCM to feature this specific film.

I will always treasure The Circus Queen Murder for Adolphe Menjou's classic line, "I'm going over there and have a look at those cannibals".

As a Nero Wolfe fan I long hoped to see the two adaptations Columbia did in the mid '30s. I finally got to see the first one with Edward Arnold and a badly miscast Lionel Stander as Archie Goodwin. Still waiting to see the second, with an equally miscast Walter Connolly as Wolfe (and Stander again).
