UW Cinematheque - Peter Lorre: The Mad and the Bad

The Beast with Five Fingers | USA | 1946 | 16mm | 88 min. Director: Robert Florey

Event Details

Wednesday, July 18, 2018
8:30 p.m.
4070 Vilas Hall
Cast: Peter Lorre, Robert Alda, Andrea King
Lorre is Hillary Cummins, devoted assistant to concert pianist Francis Ingram and a dabbler in the occult. After Ingram meets a tragic end, the severed hand from his corpse appears to be responsible for a number of murders at a remote Italian villa. Lavishly directed on a B-budget by the stylish Florey, The Beast is also marked by one of Lorre’s most intense, tormented portrayals. Print courtesy Wisconsin Center for Film & Theater Research.
