removed all traces of satanism peter lorre
in american gogol debut to keep it alive in
a tank of fluid where it soon adopts the lady
& the monster is teutonically insane & happily
grafting a murderer’s hands onto the wrists of
orlac & thanks to a train smash lost his hands
now replaced by guillotined knife-thrower
pursuing orlac’s wife driving hell for leather
hearse & shroud & the dead man’s voice or
concert pianist removes the undamaged brain
from the dead financier (based on robert louis
stevenson’s burke & hare) & yes it’s paris later
cruise in black impasse will strain or hang &
end when orlac foils gogol throws brain
from the hearse the panicked horses




the hands of orlac (mad with love)
