Alabama's Ghost (1973)


A Criswell-esque narrator speaks of magic hash-hish, nazis, a vanishing elephant, and black coffins while smoke drifts over vast constellations. And so it begins! Alabama (the smooth ‘n’ manic Christopher Brooks) works as a jack-of-all trades at Turk Murphy’s dixieland jazz club. After a stumble down the basement steps, fate smiles. For Alabama discovers the belongings of old magician Carter The Great, and subsequently becomes an overnight sensation for “bringing the magic to a new generation!” Of course, fame does not come without foibles. Remember the magic hash-hish? The elephant? The vampires? Yep. They’re all here. And they all spell trouble for our hero.

Crazy plot with a evil mastermind that reminds me of another evil mastermind in some more recent movies involving some spies. Wonder if the ideas came from here.
