Pretty interesting film with a downbeat ending. The special effects are great for 1933. By the way, the box INCORRECTLY lists running time of 59 minutes! This version actually is 67 minutes. It is unfortunate that it is dubbed (if it hadn't been found in Italy it might have retained its soundtrack). Still its great to have at all. Thank God for Forry Ackerman! We'll never see his like again. He and the late Bill Everson were truly irreplaceable Film researchers. Where in our disposable subculture will we find people interested in knowing about things that happened before a year or two ago. The internet age has wreaked havoc with fact-finding and accurate information. If you don't browse, you will never know anything beyond the narrow scope of search engine results.
