What Made HIm Do It?
23 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The movie begins with a man being executed on circumstantial evidence for something he did not do. He was engaged to the daughter of the main character. Shortly after this, his twin brother shows up. Bela Lugosi, walking around with his hands in front of him (ala, a somnambulist), losing control because his mad wife is out in a hovel in the back yard. This movie makes absolutely no sense. In an old house lives a kindly man named Kessler, played by Lugosi. The problem is that people are being murdered routinely around him. The police, who are always without a clue (no pun intended) come and go and seem to think: Gee that's odd. Another murder. Lugosi is asked why he doesn't move, but he just waits for his wife to return from wherever she went. It's never clear what happened to his wife, but she seems to come and go from a little building in the back yard that is tended by the gardener (one of the early victims). For whatever reason, when she shows up, Kessler puts up his hands, walks into someone's room and murders them. There is comic relief from Clarence Muse. He is a black man and probably the only fun character in the movie. When he discovers a body, he has the great line: "Do I look pale? I feel pale." He is the most stable character in the movie which I thought was cool. When they try to pin the murders on him (a psychiatrist comes to see if he is crazy), he holds up very well. Eventually, of course, the true murderer will show what he is made of. The problem is that there is no wrap up other than possible mental illness. The wife figured into this somehow, but shouldn't we be told a little more. Oh, well, poor old Lugosi probably made about 50 dollars for this.
