"The Mad Doctor of Market Street"
Shock Theater with Joe Dante kicks off this week over at the recently revamped Trailers from Hell, with director and TFH creator Dante introducing 1942's "The Mad Doctor of Market Street," helmed by noir maestro Joseph H. Lewis ("Gun Crazy").

One of the lesser lights in the Screen Gems Shock TV package that helped initiate the Monster Kid boom in the late 50s. These lurid, cheap but slickly produced double feature items, usually running between 60 and 75 minutes, were ideal for programming in 90 minute time slots with commercials. At least this one has the redoubtable Lionel Atwill, always a top contender for the title of Hollywood's Maddest Doctor, in fine villainous form.
