(aka 'Behind the Door ')

directed by Nick Grinde
USA 1940

 

  One of quite a few from Columbia's "Mad Doctor" movies featuring Karloff. In this one Dr. Tim Morgan (Roger Pryor) is a scientist working on curing cancer with cryogenic freezing therapy. But after extensive work with limited results, he seeks out Dr. Leon Kravaal (Boris Karloff), another radical colleague who mysteriously disappeared almost a decade before. He finds him alright... but frozen! Once revived other details begin to surface in this classic mystery / sci-fi from the 40's. If you are into this genre, then you may consider this quintessential.

Comments:

Very impressive image until we reach the end of the film where the print must have fallen on hard times. It is surprisingly sharp with a bit of grain, some expected contrast fluctuations, but for most of the film it looks to be of Warner-restoration quality. Standard for Columbia - it's a bare bones release with an enticing price tag. I don't suppose a film like this would warrant a lot of supplement attention unless boxed in a Karloff signature set or the like. I enjoyed this film very much, but as many know, I am bias for this stuff. I always find it amusing watching Karloff with his grim, stone-faced look that seems to suit any scene.
