Lorre cuts a striking figure as Doctor Gogol.
A hugely successful example of '30s horror style at its most unhinged and portentously Germanic, and also a nasty, insightful chunk of pulpy psychological study.
This movie is full of creepy imagery and entendre; some of the surgical accoutrement make David Cronenberg look like Steven Spielberg!
Wild Peter Lorre horror classic directed by great Karl Freund.
The last half hour of Mad Love gets more and more strange until it becomes honestly horrifying.
Peter Lorre's auspicious first appearance in a Hollywood-made film.
Fascinating, ultra-creepy tale
Grim horror film from Karl Freund.
I'm madly in love with this movie and Peter Lorre! It's so beautiful and horrific all at once, very romantic. If you love old horror movies, you must see this one.
This campy and highly melodramatic horror movie is notable as the American debut of Peter Lorre. This being the second adaptation of the Hands of Orlac story has a lousy title that sounds like a musical comedy which features Renee Zellweger. Fortunately, Mad Love happens to be about a man at loose ends and a mad man who happens to be a scientist. Filmed with sharp angles and vague lighting which should be expected from director Freund who worked as cinematographer on Metropolis and Dracula (1931). It's fun, creepy, and often hilarious.
Peter Lorre gives another wonderfully creepy performance as brilliant but off his rocker Dr. Gogol. He is in love with actress Yvonne Orlac (Frances Drake). She is married to a concert pianist (Colin Clive). When Orlac's hands are crushed in a train accident, Yvonne goes to him for help. His love for her (and his loose screws) persuade him to do some dastardly deeds that he hopes will ruin Orlac, both physically and emotionally, on the idea that Yvonne will leave her husband for Gogol. Soime really unsettling scenes, particularly when Gogol kisses Yvonne at her going-away party. Gets fewer stars than it should because the character, for comic relief I suppose, of the wisecracking reporter (played by Ted Healy, who I believe gave the Three Stooges their start) was out of place. Otherwise, well-done.
muahahahahaha! peter lorre's first hollywood film is a remake of the german silent horror orlacs hande, in which a mad doctor grafts a murderer's hands onto a pianist. fantastic campy performance
