This is on a two-fer with Mad Love, and just about the only thing that prevented me from being completely blown away by it was that I'd watched Mad Love immedietaly prior to it, and that was monumental. This one though is quite a bit of fun too. It's almost as though they took a shade from Bride of Frankenstein and them ironed it out to see what happened. Lionel Barrymore, of course, has the most to do, and the disguise really isn't up to much, but in the xcontext of the film it works quite well. It also doesn't simplify the morality too much, leaving us with a bitter sweet climax. The FX hold up surprisingly well too. Really enjoyed this one, and as a double-bill with Mad Love.... will I'd probably watch this first and THEN Mad Love, rather than the other way around. Either way, truly worth seeing this.
