When they take the key out of the dead man's hand (it looks more like a woman's hand in the closeup), the hand has to be forced open but continues to open after the officer stops forcing it as the key and chain are removed. Subsequently, it assumes at least 4 different positions, 2 palm up, 2 palm down between shots. Lots of moving for a dead hand. See more »
Although I accept the fact that this film is indeed lost, I've never seen it in my life, BUT, to contradict the reviewer above who says it was destroyed in a 1931 fire, at some point in the past ten years (cant remember exactly) I saw on internet a copy of this film was being shown at one of UCLA's theater programs. If that's true, there's at least one copy in someone's private collection, out there somewhere. Never give up hope! re: the Spanish version of Dracula Universal 1931 was considered lost for decades until someone found a print copy in a Havana Cuba Warehouse early 1990s, it's now restored and widely available! Keep hoping and keep searching: You'd be surprised where these "losties" turn up!
