Paul Orlac is a world-renowned pianist who loses his hands in a horrible accident. A surgeon is able to attach a new set but they are from a convicted murderer! When Orlac feels compelled to kill, have the hands taken over his body?
Reuniting two of the principles from “The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari” – director Robert Weine and actor Conrad Veidt – this classic is all grim ambience and b&w mood. (imdb, wiki)
The VOC Silent Film Harmonic are: Ted Harms (double bass), David Hunsberger (clarinets), Steve Lederman (percussion, brass), Bradford Nowak (percussion, trumpet), and Wade Whittaker (guitar).
