YEAR RELEASED:  1958

DIRECTOR: Robert Day

CAST: Boris Karloff, Christopher Lee, Betta St. John, Finlay Currie and Francis Matthews

MINI-REVIEW FROM STEPHEN JACOBS: “An underrated historical drama based, in part, on the sad life on Horace Wells, an American dentist who, in the mid 19th Century, became addicted to the nitrous oxide he was using – with tragic consequences. Karloff plays Dr. Thomas Bolton, a surgeon whose search for anaesthesia leads to an addiction to the drug. In order to fuel his work (and addiction) the doctor falls in with a bunch of criminals, one of which – Resurrection Joe – is played by Christopher Lee. Lee took a break from filming to attend the New York opening of Dracula (U.S. Horror of Dracula).”
