Kitley's Krypt MYSTERY PHOTO #33

Another week, another MYSTERY PHOTO!

Jon Kitley, pillar of the Chicago Horror Community and head honcho over at KITLEY'S KRYPT, wants to challenge your horror knowledge. Week in, week out, he posts a Mystery Photo - sometimes from an obscure horror title, sometimes just an unusual shot from a well-known classic. We figured our faithful Claw readers would enjoy the challenge!

Last week's photo was from Tod Browning's 1936 classic, THE DEVIL-DOLL. Lionel Barrymore stars as an escaped (wrongfully accused) convict who hatches a scheme of vengeance upon the three corporate crooks that framed him. Not an unusual plot device, but how many films involve dressing the main character in old lady drag, shrinking people down to doll size then sending them out to commit murder? Exactly. Additionally, the special effects are quite impressive for their day and still hold up. Well worth checking out.

Let's see how well you fare with this week's offering:
