The Mad Genius (1935)

The Mad Genius (1935)

Peter Lorre—at his creepiest
Starring as the mad scientist
Dr. Gogol—brilliant surgeon
Who’s favorite pastime is to
Watch criminals writhing in
Death after being guillotined

Francis Drake hates him—
But her pianist husband Colin
Clive—needs surgery after an
Accident—so jealous Lorre
Grafts on the hands of a killer
Knife thrower—recently axed

Remake of earlier film by Conrad
Veidt—The Hands of Orlac (1925)
And another horror flick in a
Series of Homicidal Hands movies
Adding a little spice to the usual
Mad Love erotics—of Miss Lorre
