The Devil Doll (1936)

Greetings Film Fiends and Deadites,

What can I say about this film, a cross-dressing Lionel Barrymore??? MGM’s “The Devil-Doll” directed by Tod Browning (of course) and starring Lionel Barrymore, Maureen O’Sullivan and Frank Lawton. This pseudo-sci-fi movie tells the story of a man who was falsely accused of murder, escapes Devil’s Island with a scientist, and with the scientist’s formula, clears his name by shrinking people. This is an early predecessor of the movie Dr. Cyclops. Available on Netflix’s Hollywood’s Legends of Horror.
