YEAR RELEASED: 1960
DIRECTOR: Edmond T. Gréville
CAST: Mel Ferrer, Christopher Lee, Dany Carrel, Donald Pleasence

The Hands of Orlac

PLOT: A pianist has a transplant operation that gives him a new pair of hands. Unfortunately, the hands belonged to a murderer, and he finds the hands starting to take over his life and commit crimes. A seedy magician suspects what is happening and tries to blackmail him.

140-CHARACTER MINI-REVIEW: Slightly dull remake of 1924 classic, Hands of Orlac has great cast but fails on most levels. Watch other remake Mad Love (1935) instead.
