Mad Love DVD 1935 Peter Lorre Horror Romance NR Black & White
Mad Love Stars: Peter Lorre, Frances Drake, Colin Clive
Mad Love Story Line: In Paris, the great surgeon Dr. Gogol falls madly in love with stage actress Yvonne Orlac, and his ardor disturbs her quite a bit when he discovers to his horror that she is married to concert pianist Stephen Orlac.
Shortly thereafter, Stephen’s hands are badly crushed in a train accident – beyond the power of standard medicine. Knowing that his hands are his life, Yvonne overcomes her fear and goes to Dr. Gogol, to beg him to help. Gogol decides to surgically graft the hands of executed murderer Rollo onto Stephen Orlac, the surgery is successful but has terrible side-effects…
Lorre turns in yet another astonishing performance here; his Gogol is very convincing, quite capable of handling a few lines of cornball dialogue without seeming foolish in the least. And the sympathy he elicits is simply amazing
This film is not as well-known. That’s a shame–it’s one of the best horror films to come out in the 1930s. See this if you get a chance – it’s one of Lorre’s best performances.
