The Body Snatcher - Cinema
USA 1945, directed by Robert Wise, starring Boris Karloff, Bela Lugosi, Henry Daniell, Russell Wade, b/w, 77', 35mm Italian dubbed version
Edinburgh, 1831. MacFarlane teaches anatomy and needs corpses for his class. Gray, a local cabbie, prowls cemeteries to get the bodies. Things go wrong when, to comply with MacFarlane's requests, Gray starts to kill. The Body Snatcher is one of the great RKO classics, full of thrilling suspense and unusually well-written. Produced by legendary film-maker Val Lewton, it stars an equally legendary couple: Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi.
