A Quick Tip by rbuchanan

  • Jul 13, 2011
Obsessed with the daughter of a concert pianist because she bears an identical resemblance to his deceased wife, a mad scientist injects the virtuoso with the acromegaly virus, which produces hideous results. The lunatic scientist plans to exchange a cure for the pianist's daughter's hand in marriage, but his jealous assistant has different plans. This short feature is as cheaply made as most '40s horror B-movies, but it benefits from decent acting and a compelling story; there are worse ways to spend an hour. To illustrate how old this film is, it was rated B from the National Catholic Office for Motion Pictures back when it was known as the Legion of Decency.

Cool tip. Who starred in it? Lugosi?

No such luck. This one stars J. Carrol Naish of film and radio fame, who carved a niche impersonating every stereotype save his own simply because nobody thought of him as an Irishman.

Thanks. I looked him up and didn't know that he appeared in a few horror pix including House of Frankenstein with Karloff and The Beast with Five Fingers by Peter Lorre.
