The Thieving Hand

This is a genuinely unsettling little movie. It fits roughly in with Fright Month theme, and also I wanted to see if I could figure out how to embed something in the blog section since Amy was asking.

It was made in 1908 (for Vitagraph Studios--the same studio that produced "Princess Nicotine") and the very ending is missing.

Novels in Three Lines

Félix Fénéon was a terrorist and an art critic over a hundred years ago. For a few years he wrote several short news items every day for a French newspaper. They are characterized by humor, detachment, deadpan horror, and mystery.

THIS blew my mind when I found this live performance of this adored track .
