Product DetailsThe Ape:
The Ape brings together two legends of horror, Frankenstein star Boris Karloff and The Wolf Man writer Curt Siodmak. Karloff stars as Dr. Adrian, a man who becomes obsessed with curing paralysis when he loses his beloved wife and daughter to the disease. Desperately trying to cure a crippled neighbor (Maris Wrixon), he discovers that he needs human spinal fluid for his vaccine - but how to get it? When an ape trainer at a local circus is badly mauled, the doctor allows him to die so that he can tap his spine. The gorilla escapes and goes on a killing spree terrorizing the small town. A cult horror classic, The Ape was Karloff's final film for Monogram.
In WWI Europe, a German spy, Valdar, (Boris Karloff) is masquerading as the butler of a British war official (Holmes Herbert). Helene Von Lorbeer (Margaret Lindsay) is a counterspy sent to live with the British family and rendezvous with Valdar. She is searching for a key operative in the German spy ring. British Intelligence is an espionage thriller filled with intrigue, identity puzzles and plot twists. Karloff is menacing as Valdar, with his unsettling limp and icy performance. Made at the outset of WWII in Europe, its' reference to the new German threat is evident and timely.
