Mark of the Vampire (1935)

 In Rare & Unusual

This model kit was a straightforward build with no particular problems. All paints were acrylics. Those “wings” of Luna needs some discussions. No where in the actual film does the Luna character appear wearing those wings so why are they there? During the last few minutes of the film, when the characters say (spoiler alert) it was all a hoax, we see an assistant, on film, putting those wings into a large case for storage. Without knowing anything else those wings do not make sense within the context of the film. However, if you look at the film trailer we do indeed see the Luna character ‘flying’ about wearing those wings!

From Wikipedia:

Mark of the Vampire (also known as Vampires of Prague) is a 1935 horror film, starring Lionel Barrymore, Elizabeth Allan, Bela Lugosi, Lionel Atwill, and Jean Hersholt, and directed by Tod Browning. It is a talkie remake of Browning’s silent London After Midnight (1927), with the characters’ names and some circumstances changed.
