Description

Famed surgeon Dr. Gogol (Peter Lorre) adores actress Yvonne Orlac. Alas, she is married to a brilliant pianist. But Yvonne turns to Gogol for help when her husband's hands are maimed in an accident... and Gogol obliges by replacingthe hands with those of a recently executed killer. Experience the rest of this bizarre Mad Love for yourself as Lorre makes his impressively eerie American debut and as Karl Freund (The Mummy) directs with expressionistic flair. Welcome, next, to the quaint toy shop of the Devil Doll. There, Devil's Island escapee Paul Lavond (Lionel Barrymore) poses as a shop proprietress and uses secrets of miniaturization to turn humans into elusive minions who inflict revenge on all who sent him to prison. Tod Browning (Freaks) directs, Maureen O'Sullivan co-stars, And little horrors loom large.
