Chaplin's Moustache

put it on.

In The Hands of Orlac (dir. by Robert Wiene), a concert pianist (Conrad Veidt), is thrown into a torture-filled tailspin after an unexpected surgery leaves him with the hands of a murderer. He goes through an identity crisis, which involves a lot of hand staring, hand wrenching and outstretched hands.

At his wit’s end, Orlac bites the bullet and asks his surgeon (Hans Homma) to remove the cursed hands.

But he doesn’t go for it. And things look pretty bad for Orlac for a while.

But don’t worry, Orlac. There’s always light at the end of the tunnel. As long as the light isn’t another train.
