Audience Reviews for Climax

A young opera singer (Foster) becomes the target of the crazy house doctor (Karloff) at the Vienna Royal Opera. Will her dashing boyfriend (Bey) manage to save her before her voice is silenced forever? [center][img]http://www.geocities.com/nuelow/movclimax.jpg[/img] [i]Susanna Foster and Boris Karloff star as victim and victimizer in "The Climax"[/i] [/center] "The Climax" is Boris Karloff's first color picture and it's pretty to look at. It also has some nice performances from Karloff, Turhan Bey--who swings from dramatic of comedic with graceful ease--and Thomas Gomez as the beleaguered manager of the opera company. Unfortunately, their performances are propping up a fairly boring melodrama the titular climax of which isn't much to sing about. The film is available on DVD for the first time as part of Universal's "Boris Karloff Collection" ([url="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000FWHW8Q?ie=UTF8&tag=stevemillesdo-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B000FWHW8Q"]click here to read more about it at Amazon.com[/url]) and as such it rates as inoffensive filler. It's not exactly a bad movie, just a bland one, and one you can safely leave for last if you pick up the set. The Climax Starring: Boris Karloff, Susanna Foster, Turhan Bey, Ludwig Stossel, Thomas Gomez and Gale Sondergard Director: George Waggner

Big budget for a Universal Studios movie, good art direction and costumes. However, even with it's reasonable length, it drags on and has some definite sleep inducing sections.
