What Movie Was this? - "Hare raising" scene


I saw a movie and can't find it with google.
The movie was probably 1950s or 60s. It's one of those evil scientist movies (a good one for MST3K)
As I remember the scientist had come up with a machine that could bring back the dead. The scene I remember was the scientist demonstrating this with a rabbit. He put a dead rabbit on the table and then after lots of dramatic "science stuff" the rabbit came alive again.
Does anybody know this one?

Yeah, I remember that scene too. The movie isn't coming to me now, but I'll probably think of it around 2:37 tomorrow morning.

Could be THE RETURN OF DOCTOR X, which features Bogie before he was, y’know, Bogie; and which has a mad scientist who “shows them that he has discovered the secret of bringing the dead back to life by reviving a dead rabbit.”

That's the one I was thinking of, I think I caught part of it on TCM not too long ago.

Leonard Nimoy played a military radio operator.
A truck equipped with a public address system drove through the town, announcing, "Attention! A herd of killer rabbits is headed this way!"

I knew Dr. McCoy was in Night of the Lepus (as was his predecessor as Enterprise CMO, Paul Fix), but are you sure Spock was as well?

That's correct, my mistake.
