"The Hands of Orlac" is a German silent horror film. It's based on Maurice Renard's story, "Les Mains d'Orlac." The title character is a concert pianist who suffers a horrible accident and loses his hands. His doctor transplants new hands onto him. Unfortunately, there's a problem: The new hands come from a man who'd been executed for murder. Orlac discovers he can't play piano with the new hands, and he's afraid he also got their former owner's violent tendencies. The doctor tries to convince him that's not the case, but is he right?
