Henry Cass' The Hand (1960) comes to DVD from a source that turns out to be in very decent condition -- after an opening credit sequence that's alarmingly grainy and choppy. The material looks like it's been mastered off of a circulating 16 mm dupe, a little whited out from excessive light being pumped into it, but not to the point of being unwatchable. The audio is also a major surprise, good and loud and clear. The standard half-dozen chapters can support this 65-minute movie adequately. The disc opens automatically on a simple single-layer menu with the "Play" option in the default position. There are no extras.

The Hand
In this odd crime film, Scotland Yard begins searching for the one-armed killer behind a series of gruesome murders. The story begins in Burma during WW II with the capture and torture of a British captain and his two men. The soldiers refuse to give the Burmese information, and their interrogators chop off their right hands. The captain relents and tells them all they want to know; thereby, preserving his own hand. The story leaps ahead into the present where a series of murders involving amputations have occurred. The Yard detectives trace the killings to the former captain. He is pursued by the police. He flees across some railroad tracks, falls and has his hand cut off by a passing train. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
