Movie Info

Basil Rathbone's real-life son, John Rodion, has his head chopped off early on in this historical melodrama often mistakenly referred to as a horror film. Yes, a second-billed Boris Karloff does stomp about on a club-foot as the Duke of Glouchester's chief executioner, Mord, but Karloff's presence is really more colorful than horrifying. Rathbone is the main villain here, as the Duke of Glouchester, the deformed second brother of Edward IV (Ian Hunter), whose throne he covets. But before he can

Gruesome chilling tale of dynasty change.

Makes for pretty compelling entertainment. Just don't take it for anything like historically accurate

Audience Reviews for Tower of London

I really like this movie, it has many great actors, a good horror story, and I like the ending. I highly recommend this movie. I also like the remake from the 60s, watch Vincent Price's part in both movies, it's really funny.
