THE BELLS and HAVING THEIR PICTURE TOOK
THE BELLS starring Lionel Barrymore, E. Alyn Warren, Boris Karloff and Gustav von Seyffertitz. Directed by James Young. A village innkeeper in a quaint little town, Mathias (Barrymore) is a well-liked and contented candidate for Burgomaster. He is also, unfortunately, nagged by poverty and deeply in debt. One snowy Christmas night he finally succumbs to temptation and murders a traveling Polish peddler for his money. It's not long before the peddler's restless ghost and a mysterious, all-knowing mesmerist (Karloff) make Mathias' life a living nightmare. A wonderful Christmas tale of the supernatural with a terrific cast, superb settings and wonderful atmosphere. A delight!
