Product Description

A blind sculptor (Boris Karloff) builds his works of art on skeletons, provided by his wife Tania (Viveca Lindfors). He is not aware that Tania and her lover are in fact committing murder to obtain the skeletons - burning the flesh off their victims in an acid bath. A journalist (Jean-Pierre Aumont) and his girlfriend investigate when their friend Helga falls prey to the fiendish couple. Also included is an episode of the Boris Karloff television series 'Colonel March of Scotland Yard'. In 'The Silver Curtain' Colonel March (Karloff) travels to Deuville, France on the trail of a Gallic thief.

I was encouraged to view this since a couple of reviews were very positive. Upon initial viewing, I was soon disappointed. It looked and sounded terribly dated, and the picture quality was worse than a transfer from a Super 8 film stock. After about 15 minutes struggling with this film, I gave up. Quite honestly, I don't think I needed to waste any more time. Now, the extra; an episode of Colonel March starring Boris Karloff was worth seeing. Running for about 22 minutes, it starred a few well known actors from the '50s and '60s; Anton Diffring; Eric Pohlmann and Arthur Hill. Worth a look, but the main feature was a big let-down.

I've seen several conflicting accounts of the plot for this film. As I see it it's a straightforward "wife plus lover plot to kill wealthy ageing husband to get his money" vehicle but not until he's completed his current commissioned work. Around this are woven the horror elements including the use of real skeletons as armatures for Karloff's sculptures (presumably necessary to help him continue to working since becoming blinded as the result of an earlier failed murder attempt?).
It's a typical 60's cheesy euro technicolour horror feature but is visually very attractive and has an interesting score and a nice opening title sequence making it better than many films of this genre. The print quality is very good plus there's a bonus Karloff serial episode.

Must own for Karloff fans due to the Colonel March episode. I'd buy an official box set of the series instantly if it was available.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a great film by any stretch of the imagination 1 Dec. 2006
By DodgyUSA - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Not much to add except a point of trivia. Boris took over this film from the original actor Claude Rains. Claude passed away and Boris took over the reins...so to speak.

If you think this is bad, trying watching the last four "quickies" he did which were released posthumously.
4.0 out of 5 stars Viveca Lindfors makes this worth watching -- BUT... 14 Oct. 2013
By Notary Sojac - Published on Amazon.com

...not for $796!! I'm holding on to my VHS tape until a sensibly priced DVD comes along -- one that, one hopes, will be complete and of decent quality, and not a bootleg.
