Rondo Remembers - Vampires (& werewolves) Play Piano

It was Carl Wilson of The Beach Boys who once said something along the lines of "Music is your soul speaking." Or, something close to that. There's no doubt in my mind that music does go beyond just something to listen to. It can move you in many ways. Did scriptwriters of monster movies use that? It seems so.

Reflecting back to 1965 or 1966 I was at my Grandfather Adams' house. Together we were watching THE WORLD OF THE VAMPIRES on a TV showcase called "Dialing For Dollars." This seems crazy, as my paternal grandfather was a kind, but tough guy. He was a coal miner and then steel worker in true western Pennsylvania way. But, Dialing For Dollars was a regular for him right before supper.

THE WORLD OF THE VAMPIRES (1961) was rather new to be hitting a TV movie package. But, it did. It was an import from Mexico by A.I.P. TV and dubbed in English. In that movie there's a fascinating scene where the lead vampire, at a social party, is playing the piano. His music takes a dark, minor key twist. It entrances a young woman (also a potential victim of the vampire). Creepy and weird, I would think back to this in the years to come.

Fast forward about four years to about 1969. I sat in my parents living room, cross-legged, on the floor in front of the television. It was between 8:30PM and 10PM on a Saturday night and my favorite movie showcase "Creature Feature" was on. It would later become "Creature Features" (with an "s" at the end). The movie that night was HOUSE OF DRACULA (1945). This film pre-dated THE WORLD OF THE VAMPIRES and featured a scene guessed it, Dracula (John Carradine) controlling, mentally, the playing of the piano by Martha O'Driscoll. He had his eyes on her and seduced her into "his world" of darkness and the dead. The mode of transportation was his music that scared her and turned into minor key creepiness. It hypnotized her into their alluring world of darkness. A similar scene occurs with Anne Gwynne in HOUSE OF FRANKENSTEIN (1944).

Now, let's spin into the early 1980s. I'm older and VHS tapes had arrived on the scene. I could locate movies through other collectors. Things I had only known about and had never seen. KISS OF THE VAMPIRE (1963), a Hammer movie, was one. I had only seen a trailer for it on TV when I was young. I had always wanted to see this movie that featured a horde of bats crashing through a stained glass window. That was the image that had stuck with me from seeing the ad on TV.

Well, there it was. Yet, another scene of an undead vamp playing a piano for a female house guest. The music swayed her and she fell into the vampire's trance. She became a willing victim of "his world." She had fallen into the grips of a family of vampires. Another film I finally got to see on video tape in those pre-DVD, Blu-Ray, and streaming days was THE MAN AND THE MONSTER (1958). This one had a cursed pianist that turned into a drooling werewolf when he would try to play.

It was all so interesting as, in my brain, I tied all these films together. Music was more than music. It was something that played your soul. Some of the screenwriters of these movies must have thought that. Today, hearing church choirs, it takes me back to the church I went to as a child. In 1964 I heard The Beatles "I Want To Hold Your Hand" for the first time in a local barber shop. That made a stamp on me. In 1968 I heard "Hey Jude" pouring out of a neighbor's window. Hanging out, looking at a car that belonged to my friend's dad (an old MG), I remember holding a transistor radio while the song "Sugar Sugar" by The Archies played.

Music has a strange power indeed and becomes a time marker. Dog-earing moments in our lives. Magical.

There's a film from the 1940s called Hangover Square with a great score by Herrmann. When he hears dissonant notes or sounds it causes Laird Cregar's character in the film to become a psychotic murderer?? Film has beautiful, film noirish B&W photography and was directed by John Brahm who did a number of Twilight Zone episodes!

(Editor's note: Nick plays keyboards in the Monster Bash band. In July he will try to not turn into a werewolf on stage, but may be drooling....)

Hi Ron,

It is said that "Music Doth Have Charms To Sooth The Savage Beast" (the actual quote is breast, but We're talking about Monsters here) and in some cases that is true, as You mentioned KISS OF THE VAMPIRE and HOUSE OF DRACULA. However, that music was twisted for nefarious uses and as I'm more familiar with HOD, Dracula seemed to encourage the girl to keep on playing.

Personally, I kind of liked it when musical cues seemed to turn in the wrong direction. You have mentioned The Bat with the Girls head for WORLD OF THE VAMPIRES, but my favorite part is when Rudolf is playing music at a party and The Count appears quite uncomfortable; it almost looks like his fangs are growing longer until He bellows "Stop It , You Fool...STOP IT!!!!". And it might be a South of the Border coincidence, but the main thing I remember from THE MAN AND THE MONSTER is towards the end when our protagonist has changed again and is running amuck. A Policeman tries to contain him and finds himself getting scooped up followed by a first class Body Slam-ouch!

I enjoyed Your musical observations where You were pulled into a new exciting world. For Christmas of 1969, I got 45's of "Leaving On A Jet Plane" (Peter, Paul and Mary) and "Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head" (BJ Thomas) that I played constantly. During the following months, songs such as "Close To You" (The Carpenters"), "Cracklin' Rosie" (Neal Diamond) and especially "The Love You Save" by The Jackson 5 just swept Me up and never let go. I rode around frequently with My Mom and She always had the AM radio on and I often think how fantastic the popular music was from many gems. While I gravitated towards harder rock by the mid 70's, I still loved the old songs. We have SIRIUS XM on our cars and I often find myself stuck on the 60's and 70's channels; in. fact, listening this morning to a replay of AMERICAN TOP 40 from April 10, 1971 and being taken back remembering so many details of that time and still loving so much of that material.

Steve Schimming,

You described some pretty eerie moments from those films. I never got into the Mexican horror films but one that is a favorite of mine is FACE OF TERROR with Lisa Gaye.

As far as piano playing in horror films, there are three that come to mind. BEAST WITH FIVE FINGERS and Peter Lorre seeing the hand playing the piano. RETURN OF THE APE MAN where in Bela Lugosi transplants the brain of his fellow scientist John Carradine into the prehistoric man. Carradine plays the piano earlier in the film and later the caveman plays the same song on the piano.

One other related film is MAD LOVE also with Peter Lorre. Lorre grafts the hands of a murderer onto Colin Clive , a concert pianist. This movie was NEVER on TV back in the day despite being featured many times in books and the horror magazines for years. Growing up in Chicago and it being a large TV market , there were always many films that never seemed to be on the local channels. Or would always seem to play after midnight on school nights. It finally showed up on cable either on TNT or TBS in the early 90 's. Then soon after, it popped up at a video rental place on tape.

7PM MOVIE: GODZILLA, KING OF THE MONSTERS (1956). The granddaddy of Japanese monsters. This radioactive dynamo comes out of the box fired-up, literally! Watch him destroy Tokyo (for the first time) while Raymond Burr just looks stunned. This is the American version release in English language.

9PM MOVIE: DINOSAURUS! (1960). Stars Ward Ramsey, Kristina Hanson and Paul Lukather. A frozen Tyrannosaur, Brontosaurus and a caveman unthaw from watery depths and find themselves in the 20th century. A young boy befriends the Bronto and even gets a ride. While the Tyrannosaur is just plain nasty (as expected), and the caveman provides the humor as he tries to cope with a modern world. The unforgettable climax has the T. Rex battling a steam shovel!
