The Crime Of Dr. Crespi

1936, Movie, NR, 64 mins

This bastardization of Edgar Allan Poe's "The Premature Burial" stars Eric von Stroheim in one of his most outrageous roles. Stroheim injects his rival with a drug that induces suspended animation. He then has the rival buried so that he can gloat over the man's reaction upon finding himself in a coffin. Von Stroheim is so campy in his portrayal that the film's entertainment value derives from unintentional laughs.
Released: 1936 Rated: NR Length: 64 mins
