Storyline

Dr. Victor Sartorius, a dedicated but dying medical researcher working in Morocco, becomes frustrated when his funding is cut off and his experiments ended. He is approached by Lady Yvonne Clifford, the young and beautiful wife of wealthy but aging aristocrat Sir Charles Clifford. She has been carrying on an affair with a gold-digging army captain and offers Sartorius the 20,000 pounds he needs to continue his research if he will become her husband's personal physician and covertly murder him. When Sir Charles' son Roger enters the picture, it is clear that he is marked for death too. Only Sartorius' altruistic nurse Joan stands in the way. Written by duke1029@aol.com

Quotes

Lady Yvonne Clifford: Tell me, doctor, what would it cost to enable you to finish your experiments?
Dr. Victor Sartorius: What I want to do is surround myself with the finest scientists in the world in the short time I have left, and I haven't very long to live, you know. Cost? Uh... twenty thousand pounds.
Lady Yvonne Clifford: I'm prepared to find that sum for you.

One of Karloff's Worst
8 March 2008 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

Juggernaut (1936)

* (out of 4)

Incredibly bad thriller about a mad scientist (Boris Karloff) who is hired by a millionaire to kill her husband but things take a turn for the worse. This film runs 62 minutes but I could have sworn it was 62 hours. The movie is so incredibly slow, boring and annoying that I kept wishing Karloff would insert me with some poison. The only good thing is Karloff's performance but that too gets lost in all the badness. Mona Goya plays the wife and gives without a doubt one of the worst performances I've ever seen. The most annoying to as she does nothing but shout throughout the film.
