An enjoyable, albeit brief, horror thriller unusually produced in England by Gainsborough Pictures who were definitely trespassing on Universal's territory, "The Man who changed his mind" is well worth an hour of anybody's time in my view.
It seems odd to think that, on it's initial appearance it presumably merited an "H" for horror, adults only, censor's certificate and now, 75 years later, the DVD is classed as "U"!! How times change! It's still an exciting chiller of the mad doctor type, well acted by all the principals. Karloff's laboratory is suitably equipped with weird and wonderful equipment, with the obligatory electric charge oscillating all over the place! Anna Lee as the heroine is most attractive, she starred in many British films of the 30's before going to America and continuing her career there (you may recall her as Baby Jane's overly concerned next-door neighbour). She's very pretty and appealing here, bright and bubbly, a good foil for Karloff's deranged scientist.
The plot is simple but effective and moves at a good pace, with plenty of excitement.
The print used is fine, with good sound level. I enjoyed this very much and recommend it without hesitation.
