Alraune / Mandragore / Unnatural (1952) DVD9
This is the fifth version (the best version being the 1928 silent with Paul Wegener and Brigitte Helm) that writer Fritz Rotter bases on the Hanns Heinz Ewers novel. Erich Von Stroheim plays defrocked mad scientist Professor Jacob Ten Brinken, who has created a baby by means of artificial insemination--which was the reason for his removal from the university. The Professor used the sperm from a convicted murderer and the egg from a slum-living Hamburg waitress of easy virtue. He names the baby Alraune (the German name for the narcotic mandrake root), and raises her as his daughter without telling her the secret. Brinken keeps her a secret from all but his servants, as he fears she has inherited her parents' evil. But his sponging university student nephew, Frank Braun (Karl Boehm), shows up one night at his mansion to hit the Professor up for some money to pay his tuition for medical school and discovers the beautiful Alraune (Hildegard Knef), and immediately falls in love with her...
