The Amazing Dr. Clitterhouse

Internet Movie Database Movie Reviews

Another ‘psychologist who identifies with his study too well’ movie, Dr. Clitterhouse is so absorbed by his study of the criminal mind that he becomes one.

This was one of the movies on our New Year’s Day Moviefest (theme: John Huston, who wrote the screenplay.)

This was pretty good for a 1938 psychological melodrama; Edward G. Robinson chews scenery like the pro that he was, and you can’t go wrong with Serious Honey Humphrey Bogart.

Predictable (Crime Does Not Pay) but the twists and turns, and the struggle for control of the gang between Bogie and Robinson, are worth watching.
