Jim Stowell (William), a dedicated district attorney, convinced that those who kill should be executed. During the course of one of his cases--professor McAllen (Morgan), in a paroxysm of jealousy, murdered his wife--Stowell experiences a sense of foreboding. At home his neglected lonely wife, Lucy (Patrick) has riveted her attention to a young man. Stowell's home life closely matches that of the prosecuted professor, as does his enraged reaction to Lucy's apparent betrayal.

The butterfly boy by Tony Klinger( )

The Butterfly Boy takes the reader on a dramatic, sweeping journey through two World Wars in Germany and races on around the globe throughout that tumultuous century. The Butterfly Boy is the story of Arnie, who as a small boy loses the use of his arms through polio, yet conquers this to grow up to be the "greatest mouth painter in the world." Born in a sleepy German town Arnie rises to become one of Hitler's favourite artistes despite his handicap and his Jewish mother. Arnie risks his like to undertake covert activities for the allies and the Christian resistance movement. Arnie matures into a great handsome bull of a man, who, despite not having the use of his arms still manages to be a great womanizer and hell raiser. The conflict between Arnie and his childhood nemesis, now senior Nazi officer, Ratwerller, is a battle to the death that slashes through their lives like a sharpened razor. They stop at nothing to seek the destruction of one another. After the war Arnie, The Butterfly Boy builds the Mouth Painting Charity around the world from which he makes tens of millions of dollars whilst destroying anyone that stands in his way. But it is his own waywardness and his unresolved past that haunts him. This is the story of an extraordinary man, taking an extraordinary journey during extraordinary times. You will love and fear for Arnie, and be hypnotized by him

James Whale by James Curtis( Book )

1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

James Whale directed some of the most stylish movies of the 1930s, but he was most successful in a genre he virtually invented. Most famously in Frankenstein, but also in The Invisible Man and The Bride of Frankenstein, Whale created a new type of horror film -sophisticated, tragic, and morbidly humorous. Whale made grim war dramas, light comedy, adventure, mystery, and even a movie version of the musical Show Boat. However, his career faltered and, being openly gay, he found work increasingly hard to get. He quit his film work just ten years after the triumph of Frankenstein, and died as a result of suicide. James Curtis has written the definitive life of James Whale, taking him from poverty in rural England to the squalor of a German prison camp, to the excitement of London's West End, and ultimately to Hollywood, where he profoundly influenced several generations of filmmakers
