Title Role Recast Mid-Scene in "Return of the Ape Man" (1944) (video)

Actor George Zucco, as "The Ape Man", received third billing after Bela Lugosi and John Carradine.

But a sudden illness (or, perhaps, second thoughts) made him drop out before a single scene was completed.

It begins with two brief shots of Zucco on the table. 

Then Zucco is replaced mid-scene by actor Frank Moran. 

I neither own nor claim any rights to this material.  Just having some fun with it.  Thanks for watching!
