Sunday Morning Matinee with Lon Chaney, Bela Lugosi, and Boris Karloff


(Youtube Direktplaylist)

YouTube user deb4tlj hat sieben Filmklassiker bei Youtube hochgeladen, drei Stummfilme mit Lon Chaney und jeweils zwei Filme mit Bela Lugosi und Boris Karloff. Letztere habe ich alle gesehen, unter anderem dabei: Island of the lost Souls, nach dem mich neulich erst das Vomitationseinhorn gefragt hatte. Den gibt's oben, mehr Infos und Links auf Metafilter:

Island of Lost Souls is the first film adaptation of The island of Doctor Moreau: A Possibility, written by H. G. Wells and published in 1896. This film was denied a rating in England three times, and finally given an X rating in 1958, specifically for graphic scenes of vivisection.

Hier der Plot:

After his ship goes down, Edward Parker is rescued at sea. Parker gets into a fight with Captain Davies of the Apia and the Captain tosses him overboard while making a delivery to the tiny tropical island of Dr. Moreau. Parker discovers that Moreau has good reason to be so secretive on his lonely island. The doctor is a whip-cracking task master to a growing population of his own gruesome human/animal experiments. He does have one prize result, Lota the beautiful panther woman. Parker's fortunes for escape look up after his fiancée Ruth finds him with the help of fearless Captain Donohue. However, when Moreau's tribe of near-humans rises up to rebel, no one is safe...
