BEFORE I HANG is an intriguing little chunk of B-Film that explores the
idea that blood has memory, that the tissues and bones of the criminally
insane pulse with a life that makes them who they are. In short, blood
have blood, as Macbeth says after the appearance of Banquo's
Boris Karloff is strong in this piece about a Dr. John Garth, who is
a serum that may alleviate the ravages of age. His experiments have led
to "mercy kill" one of the subjects of his studies, and for this, he is
sentenced to death. Offered a chance to redeem himself through medical
research in prison, he and a colleague (played by the fine character
Edward Van Sloan) inoculate Garth with an experimental serum drawn from
veins of an executed murderer. The serum works, but Garth becomes a
homicidal maniac. He kills his colleague and a prison trustee, and
to lie his way into a pardon from the state for his humanitarian efforts.
After he gets out, he really has a killer's jamboree.
Aside from the mechanical gesture of touching his hand to the back of his
neck whenever one of the murderous fits come on, Karloff creates a
who's pretty sympathetic. Evelyn Keyes as his daughter adds some spark
the melodramatic proceedings. Pedro de Cordoba, piano interludes and
managed to build a soulful and arresting character who stands out all the
more against the general flatness of the Columbia "B" company. All in
the work holds up, and it's a must see for anyone who admires the efforts
Karloff and some of the other great characters of that era who (time and
again) were able to lend some real spark to what would otherwise have
pretty lifeless strips of celluloid.
