Directed by Michael Curtiz
Starring Lionel Atwill, Fay Wray, Lee Tracy, Preston Foster
Warner Archive is following their incredible two-color Technicolor restoration of Mystery Of The Wax Museum (1932) with a similar presentation of Doctor X (1932), coming in April. It will feature a slew of extras, including the alternate black and white version (shot separately).
The success of this one prompted Warner Bros. to bring Lionel Atwill and Fay Wray back for Wax Museum.
Both pictures are just plain creepy and weird — and wonderful. This one plays around with cannibalism and voyeurism. Ahh, the joys of Pre-Code Horror. Essential.
