King of the Zombies

Mantan steals the show! I saw this when I was a kid and never forgot the "when I was alive" line. I just watched it a few months ago. It also features the incredible Madame-Sul-te-Wan, a groundbreaking black actress who is barely remembered today, sadly.

Mantan, Madame Sul-te-Wan, and Willie Best are all buried near each other in Valhalla Cemetery, North Hollywood. Mantan's grave reads: "Beloved father and grandfather."
