UNNATURAL ...The Fruit Of Evil / Carlton-Film, Deutsche Styria Film GmbH - 1952
Every now and then we come across a movie from the fifties we haven't done yet, because, that carcass is stripped clean... But, I found this early Euro classic on a compilation DVD set, so, here goes.
I have a sound clip for your approval, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button located there by our crazy cleaning lady, NOW, Ralphie The Tarantula!.. Here's a little sample from... UNNATURAL!
Okay, before we get going... Speaking of unnatural!
Here's Erich von Stroheim as scientist Jacob Brinken, he has some dirty little secrets. Erich, who died in 1956 at age 71, can also be seen in these fine flicks... THE CRIME OF DOCTOR CRESPI, THE LADY AND THE MONSTER, SUNSET BLVD. and THE INFILTRATOR.
All the boys have a crush on the mystery woman seen around the grounds...
Hildegard Knef is the mystery girl, Alraune (original title). Hildegard was also in HYPNOSIS, BLUEBEARD, THE SPY, THE DIRTY DOZEN and THE LOST CONTINENT, all from the sixties.
Jacob Brinken explains how Alraune came into existence, a dirty little story partly explained in the sound clip. The skull belongs to her father who was hung for murder.
This guy is madly in love with Alraune and is shocked at what comes out of the mouth of Brinken and lets loose his disgust concerning the matter.
Check out this old bird, she likes what she sees! It's tough getting old...
C'mon mama, let's dance for the end of the sound clip!!
Here's an interesting shot, of which there are many in this flick.
At the end, Alraune confesses her sins to her lover, and...
She turns to ashes!! Okay, tune in Wednesday when we're back with more from The Dungeon!
