The man from half moon street
17 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of the greatest films of all time. Precursor to the " The picture of Dorian Grey". The actor Nils Aster is one of the great English actors who takes on this role with great aplomb! The story is about a man who is 120 year old and is given an extended life through a doctor who has it in his his power to extend a persons life, though an operation where the renewable glands, are replaced into persons, who are extremely rich as will who will pay a hefty dollar to live forever. But circumstances happen where the hero is not able to get his life needed fix. He falls in love with a young women and needs his operation to finally find the true love he has been looking his whole live. Brilliant Film, A Must SEE for all film lovers. MAKE A BIG STIR OVER GETTING THIS FILM ON DVD!!!!!!!! THANKS, CHRISTOPHER FROST HARDING, FILM CRITIC FROM Florida, USA !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
