This looks great:
Before I can start on you,
you have to be shaved clean and close. I perfected my own special technique before I was kicked out of the Medical Association. My method is based partly on calling a spade a spade. I don't monkey around. -Have you got the money? -Yeah, you want it now? Sam said you could afford $200. Put it on the table there. Ever see any botched plastic jobs? If a man like me didn't like a fellow... he could surely fix him up for life. Make him look like a bulldog or a monkey. I'll make you look older, but good. -I'll make you look as if you've lived. -I have, Doc. I hope I'm not a coward when you start in. We're all cowards.
One of the most unusual things about this film is the fact that women characters frequently speak to each other without a man present. Also, Christopher Lee has an American accent and the hero is a student in the Humanities.
This is pretty weird. Turn the sound down.
This film has it all: a vivid color palette courtesy of Eastman Kodak, the lingering trauma of WWII, a playful Swinging London vibe, plastic surgery, actual circus performances, and a sadistic and disgraced doctor of vaguely eastern European provenance.
