SWEENEY TODD, THE DEMON BARBER OF FLEET STREET (1936 U.K.) D: GEORGE KING W: FREDERICK HAYWARD/H.F. MALTBY
After MARIA MARTEN, Tod Slaughter (the hammiest of glorious grand guignol hams) became the legendary homicidal hairdresser who`s customers end up in meat pies. It`s not actually one of Slaughter`s best, but it`s difficult not to enjoy any of his (and King`s) creaky rip-snorters. With Bruce Seton, Aubrey Mallalieu and Ben Williams.
