Turner Classic Movies and Sony Pictures Home Entertainment proudly present Karloff Criminal Kind, a new collection of three atmospheric crime thrillers that showcase Boris Karloffs intensity and depth as a dramatic actor. Presented for the first timeon DVD, these three films have been fully restored and re-mastered.THE CRIMINAL CODE (1931) After playing bit parts and extras in over 60 films, Karloff finally got his big break by reprising his theatrical role as a prison trustee with an unforgiving sense of justice in this early example of the prison film. Director Howard Hawks (1932s Scarface, 1946s The Big Sleep) consulted actual Death Row inmates on how the picture should endwith a chilling climax that wouldetch Karloff in the minds of moviegoers as a doer of evil deeds. This was the first feature film of 1931 for Karloff, a year in which he would appear in sixteen movies including the picture that launched him to stardom, Frankenstein.THEGUILTY GENERATION (1931) Karloff is Tony Ricca, a notorious bootlegger locked in a mortal struggle with former ally Mike Palermo (Leo Carillo)even as their children fall in love. This Prohibition-era twist on Romeo and Juliet, featuring up-and-comer Robert Young as Karloffs son Marco and Constance Cummings as the young Maria Palermo, reflected a turn in the tide of public opinion against mobsters, who had long been glamorized in the movies. With photography by four-time Academy Award nominated special effects designer, director and cinematographer Byron Haskin (1939s The Roaring Twenties, 1953s The War of the Worlds), the film paints a tense portrait of crime during the Great Depression.BEHIND THE MASK (1932)
