The Movie: Mad Love (1935)
What Is It?: MGM couldn’t top Universal’s horrors in terms of pure iconography and majesty, so instead the studio swiped Karl Freund and Colin Clive, topped up the kink and craziness, and tossed in Peter Lorre as a mad doc in this nutso adaptation of Maurice Renard’s The Hands of Orlac.
Why Today?: On this day in 1964, Peter Lorre dies.
