Mother Riley Meets The Vampire Horror Film Trailer 1
"I Hold Up My Finger and I Say Tweet Tweet"
"My Son, the Vampire"
- Mrs. Riley: [singing to Mister Pain] Poor Mother Hubbard, what would she do? I'm so broke I don't have a bone to throw at you.
Tilly: [about the coffin] There may be a mummy in there. Mrs. Riley: Oh mummy mummy, open up it's daddy.
Delivery Driver: I have a special delivery for you. Mrs. Riley: Special delivery, which is why you put it through the window instead of the letter box.
Mrs. Riley: [seeing the robot] It's me uncle Jerry-miah, they've canned him! And me without a tin opener in the whole house.
Mrs. Riley: [singing] I lift up my finger and I say tweet tweet, now now, shush shush, come come.
- This was the only film in the series in which the main character is not called "Old Mother Riley" in the title. Still, many sources have incorrectly referred to this film as "Old Mother Riley Meets the Vampire."
The last film in the "Old Mother Riley" series. It was also the last film for Arthur Lucan who continued to make live stage appearances.
This was the only film in the "Old Mother Riley" series in which Arthur Lucan's longtime partner and wife, Kitty McShane, did not appear as Mrs Riley's daughter. Lucan and McShane had a very bitter separation in 1951.
Retitled "My Son, the Vampire" for its 1963 American re-release (six years after Bela Lugosi's death) to cash in on the success of Allan Sherman's album, "My Son, the Folksinger."
