Film poster for film "Mad Love." Features disembodied head of star Peter Lorre along with two disembodied hands holding knife with the image of co-star Frances Drake reflected in blade. In lower right corner, photo of Lorre and Drake, perhaps in a romantic embrace, is shown. Title of film is spelled out in bold red letters along with additional text describing film.Mad Love (MGM, 1935)

Love can make you do the worst things and no more so than when a demented surgeon starts engaging in bizarre surgery to pull a woman from her husband and into his own arms.  Don’t you hate it when that happens?  Peter Lorre (who else?) is the twisted doctor.  A Warner Bros. short from 1931, “Freshman Love,” will proceed the film.  B&W, 97 minutes total.
