Mad Love: "Each man kills the thing he loves..."

"I have conquered science! Why can't I conquer love?" 
Doctor Gogol 

"Mad Love" was Peter Lorre's first picture in Hollywood. A strange and brilliant tale of desperation, unfulfilled love, reckless science and ... stalking. Lorre plays Doctor Gogol, a brilliant surgeon with an obsessive knack for the beautiful, but married Madame Orlac. The movie was based on the book "Les Mains d'Orlac" by Maurice Renard, it was also filmed a few years earlier as a silent in Germany with Conrad Veidt in the lead.

This piece of obscure was sculpted by Mike Falcigno of and released through Forbidden Zone as a resin kit. Go get it!
