Adapted from Henry James’ classic novella ‘The Turn of the Screw’, this atmospheric and stylish ghost film questions whether the inexplicable events in a remote gothic country house are supernatural, or how much is in the mind of the protagonist.
All human beings are born with the certainty that they are going to die, and yet nobody wants to talk about it. Now that we have extended our life span to almost 100, we live in constant denial of our own mortality. This was not always the case...
In one of the most offbeat psychological dramas ever produced by a major film studio, Lon Chaney plays Alonzo The Armless Wonder, who performs amazing feats with his feet. He's not really armless, but has his upper limbs strapped to his sides to hide a peculiar anatomical deformity from the police. He falls in love with a young gypsy girl (Joan Crawford) who cannot stand men's hands and seeks to possess her at any cost.
