    Description

    Mad Love (MGM, 1935). Window Card (14" X 22").
    Karl Freund's remake of the silent The Hands of Orlac remains one of the most twisted and psychologically disturbing films to be released by Hollywood. In the film, Peter Lorre made his US movie debut as the obsessive Dr. Gogol, who's decent into madness brings him to the verge of murder. This was Freund's final directorial effort after working as the cinematographer on such films as Metropolis, Dracula, and The Mummy. Prior to restoration, this piece once showed creases, surface wear, and tears into the interior. The card's credits and upper text, background, the hands beneath the title, and the top of Peter Lorre's head have been airbrushed. The imprint area was once trimmed above the upper text and has since been restored. Some of airbrushing is beginning to crack in a few places, and there is a bit of unrestored surface paper loss in the second "R"of "Lorre." Fine on Cardstock.


    Estimate: $1,500 - $3,000.
