Wow, a double-feature tonight - "Blacula" and "Scream
Blacula Scream". Quality "blaxploitation" films from the
1970s. Apparently they're suddenly back "in".
Those blaxploitation flicks were FUN to watch: https://tinyurl.com/23p9u2k8

This one earned a place in "The Fifty Worst Films of All Time" (1978):

They were "niche" movies, designed to exploit a certain
audience segment in the 70's. However some WERE
"so bad they were good" while others weren't all so
bad at all. "Shaft" endures, and apparently "Blacula"
as well. In both cases though the lead was a pretty
damned good actor. Not all such movies had that
advantage.

Marshall had a fair career, stage, film and TV. His
booming bass voice made him really stand out.
However he would not have been the best choice
to voice, say, "Darth Vader". James Earl Jones's
slightly unnatural speaking style is better at making
every word, sometimes every syllable, sound very
"profound" - which made him better as a super-heavy,
good, bad or otherwise.
