A number of thrillers made in the 1920s and 1930s have become available again thanks to new technology. There are a few, however, that remain elusive to most, if not all, movie buffs. This book covers 21 thrillers from those decades that are well-regarded and eagerly sought, but difficult to find - ""The Mystery of Dr. Fu Manchu"" (1923), ""The Unknown Purple"" (1923), ""The Sorrows of Satan"" (1926), ""While London Sleeps"" (1926), ""The Monkey Talks"" (1927), ""The Chinese Parrot"" (1927), ""Stark Mad"" (1929), ""The Unholy Night"" (1929), ""High Treason"" (1929), ""The Spider"" (1931), ""Eran Trece"" (1931), ""The Monkey's Paw"" (1933), ""Trick for Trick"" (1933), ""Deluge"" (1933), ""The Vanishing Shadow"" (1934), ""The Witching Hour"" (1934), ""Double Door"" (1934), ""Black Moon"" (1934), ""Le Golem"" (1936), ""The Scarab Murder Case"" (1937), and ""Sh! The Octopus"" (1937). For each film, the author provides such details as the production company, running time, release date(s), cast and production credits, a synopsis, and commentary.
