Third Dimensional Murder (1941) George Sidney

There's something very right about getting up in the morning to watch a Pete Smith specialty shot in Metroscopix, even if I don't have 3D glasses to experience it properly. It's a riot in a haunted house, populated by seemingly no end of monsters throwing things right at us, from spears to boiling oil, to demonstrate the shocking power of the Metroscopix process. There's Frankenstein's monster a few times, and mad archers, mad savages, mad everything. Pete Smith is as annoying a narrator as he always was, but he does add to the campness of the whole thing. It plays to me like a theme park ride or a commercial for the process itself.
