    An Original 8 X 10 Candid Still of Peter Lorre from the 1935 MGM horror-romance film "Mad Love”. The plot of this film revolves around Dr. Gogol's (Lorre) obsession with a young beautiful actress Yvonne Orlac (Drake). Orlac however is already married and plans to move to England to be with her husband Stephen Orlac (Colin Clive). Stephen, having arrived to England, is now on his way to Paris.  At the train station he runs into police and convicted murderer Rollo the Knife thrower who is being taken to execution by guillotine. Dr. Gogol regularly shows up to these kinds of events and witnesses Rollo's execution firsthand. Shortly thereafter he learns of a tragic accident which costs Stephen Orlac his hands. Yvonne asks Dr. Gogol to perform the surgery on Stephen and he agrees to do so. Upon recovery Stephen realizes that he is an excellent knife thrower. It is then revealed to the audience that because of his love for Yvonne, Dr. Gogol in preforming Stephen’s surgery used the hands of murderer Rollo the Knife thrower so that Stephen would kill someone and end up going to jail.  Offered here is a nice Original Candid Still of Peter Lorre on set during the summer ’35 production. Mild handling wear and tiny scattered creases along the edges keep this piece from grading any higher. A very rare Original Still.  Very Good.
