Another under-appreciated Karloff Great

When I saw this Karloff gem was coming out on DVD, I snatched it up quicker then Glenn Strange snatched up Lenore Albert in ABBOTT AND COSTELLO MEET FRANKENSTEIN! The story: Dr. Laurence (Boris Karloff), a once-respectable scientist, begins to research the origin of the mind and the soul. The science community rejects him. He discovers how to transfer the essence of one brain into a different body! Great fun, and should have run longer then 66 min. This film was also known as DR. MANIAC and THE MAN WHO CHANGED HIS MIND. My highest recommendation. Here is the lovingly restored lobby card to this film.
