The Death Kiss (1932) is a mystery film starring David Manners as a crusading studio writer, Adrienne Ames as an actress, Bela Lugosi as a studio manager, and Edward Van Sloan as a film director. The comedy thriller features three leading players from the previous year's Dracula (Lugosi, Manners, and Van Sloan), and was the first film directed by Edwin L. Marin.

The movie was produced by KBS Productions at Tiffany Pictures and released by Sono Art-World Wide Pictures. The film is currently in the public domain and is widely available as a result.[1]


During the filming of the final scene of a motion picture, the leading man is killed during the filming. Since he was involved with several women on the set, they are all suspects. When leading lady Marcia Lane (Ames) is accused, her boyfriend, reporter Franklyn Drew (Manners), begins a search for the real killer.
