This film was called : "The Man Who Lived Again" and released on Sept. 11, 1936 which was produced in England. It depicts a home on the outskirts of London. Dr. Laurience (Boris Karloff) creates an invention that can transpose the mind of one person to the body of another. His only assistant is Clayton (Donald Calthrop), a paralytic with a fatal brain disease. A very rich man Lord Haslewood (Frank Cellier) finances Dr. Laurience's experiments. Fellow scientists discover that Dr. Laurience's experiments are unbelieveable. Karloff keeps transferring brains from one person to another without success. Finally he shares his secret with his beautiful assistant, Clare(Anne Lee) who appeared with Karloff in "Bedlam" who lives in London at the age of 90 years. Anne Lee last performed in "What Can I Do?" in 1994. Dr. Laurience loses control of himself and takes his invention to the grave. This is a true classic film of Boris Karloff.
