Did You Know?


Top billing goes to Ernest Walch, while Ernest Vilche receives 9th billing (only 12 receive credit). Due to the jumbled nature of this patchwork feature, it is a distinct possibility that the same actor was mistakenly billed twice under different names (but not much different). See more »

Seen on Pittsburgh's Chiller Theater in 1968
6 December 2013 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Curse of the Stone Hand" bears a 1964 copyright, but this two-part anthology consists of footage derived from a pair of atmospheric Chilean titles made by Argentine directors nearly two decades earlier. The first half is taken from 1946's "La Dama de la Muerte" (The Suicide Club), from director Carlos Hugo Christensen, an adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson's 1878 3-part anthology (roughly half its original length), while the second half (at the 34-minute mark of this 57 minute feature) consists of 1945's "La Casa esta Vacia" (The House is Empty), from director Carlos Schlieper, reduced to about 30 percent of its footage. The final product was created by schlock director Jerry Warren, with himself and 'Hugo Christensen' listed as co-directors. Warren tied these stories together through some newly shot sequences depicting a stone hand, which supposedly signifies a curse. John Carradine was no stranger to Warren ("The Incredible Petrified World," "Invasion of the Animal People," "House of the Black Death," "Frankenstein Island"), but for his three brief scenes, received second billing under actor 'Ernest Walch,' an Americanized pseudonym for Ernesto Vilches (from "La Dama de la Muerte"), who not only died in 1954, but was also listed ninth in the cast list, under the more simplified moniker 'Ernest Vilche.' Carradine, along with Katherine Victor and Bruno Ve Sota, only appears in the final reel, as 'The Old Drunk,' relating how he spied on a married woman cavorting with her husband's brother, totaling less than two minutes screen time (Victor gets one additional scene, confronting the husband, conveniently seen from the back). Warren's butchery makes for very dull viewing, even worse than "Invasion of the Animal People," another waste of Carradine's exceptional talents. "Curse of the Stone Hand" made its only appearance on Pittsburgh's Chiller Theater May 4 1968, followed by second feature 1958's "Frankenstein-1970," just three months after the death of its star Boris Karloff.
