Scope and Contents

Memo regarding The Hands of Dr. Maniacal.. Universal City: Universal City Studios, October 7, 1970. A stapled two-page memo from Coles Trapnell to George J. Santoro on the subject of The Hands Of Dr. Maniacal by Tim Kelly.

The memo states: 'A feeble fleshcreeper that seems to have been inspired by an old German horror film (remade twice in America) called THE HANDS OF ORLAC, which was about a pianist who loses his hands in an accident and has the hands of a murderer grafted on ... Obviously not for us although it may well show up on the ghoul circuit as the bottom of a double bill with DRACULA IN DRAG.'
