The Devil Doll
(Tod Browning, 1936). This winning fantasy, the only first-rate picture Browning made after Freaks stars Lionel Barrymore as a framed convict escaped from Devil's Island, who disguised as a benign old lady, sends miniaturized creatures to attack his enemies. As the wacky widow of the inventor of the shrinking process, the inimitable Rafaela Ottiano steals the show.
