    Mad Love (MGM, 1935). Lobby Card (11" X 14").
    Peter Lorre is at his demented best as the mad Doctor Gogol in this offbeat thriller. Colin Clive co-stars as concert pianist Stephen Orlac, whose hands are crushed in an accident. Desperate to heal her husband, beautiful actress Yvonne Orlac (Frances Drake) appeals to eminent surgeon Dr. Gogol for help. Gogol, obsessed with Yvonne, grafts the hands of vicious knife murderer Rollo onto Stephen's arms, attempting to remove him from the picture, with terrible consequences for all involved. Directed by Karl Freund, who also helmed the Universal classic The Mummy (1932), this was Lorre's first American film, and helped solidify his reputation as one of the leading actors in Hollywood. The movie was extremely controversial at the time of its release, and was banned, or heavily censored, in several countries. Heritage presents an exceedingly scarce scene card, with the obsessively possessive Lorre clutching Drake. There are two chips in the top border, a bottom right and top left corner bend, small stain in the left and right background and right border, pinholes in the corners, and a few small surface scratches, including one in Lorre's cheek. Overall, these are very minor imperfections. Paper on this title is seldom seen at auction, so don't miss this opportunity to add this remarkable card to your collection. Fine+.
