A Document of the Transition from Silents to Talkies
I have noticed some commenters found the movie boring or slow. You have to remember that it was made in 1933! The pacing and suspense probably felt very quick to an audience that had never seen TV, and whose primary source of entertainment was radio (for drama, suspense, horror and comedy).

The aspect I find most interesting about this definite classic of the horror genre — aside from the excellent acting, atmosphere, script (the only adaptation of “Island of Dr. Moreau” that is faithful and the only one that’s good) and makeup — is the way it chronicles the development of film, from silent movies to talkies. Perhaps the reason some viewers find it boring is that one thing the film lacks is any musical soundtrack. I noticed this quite strikingly in some of the long pans that take place, and also in the chase scenes. I may be wrong, but I think this is a holdover from silent movies, when the music was supplied by a live musician playing piano in the movie theater. Certainly some of the emotional reaction shots, and in particular the shots of the group of half-men approaching the camera near the end, which are repeated several times, have the feel of silent movie technique. In fact, the overall feeling I get when watching this movie is that of a silent movie, with talking added in. This movie just seems to me to have been made exactly on the cusp of a time when filmmakers were adjusting their techniques to the use of sound, but hadn’t fully arrived there yet.

Of course the movie is also excellent as pure entertainment. Charles Laughton was the perfect Dr. Moreau, and all the other players were well done too. And we all remember the quotes of the Sayer of the Law. I remember another one, though, by the Captain that brings the girl to the island. “No long pig?” he asks, grinning. We are chilled to learn that long pig refers to consumption of human flesh. And the final line, “Don’t look back.” Overall, this is a frightening look at the way science can be perverted by people with no conscience.

“Do you know what it means to feel like god?”
I’m surprised it took me so long to find out about this film. It was shown on Turner Classics this morning and I was up early to catch it. I was immediately struck by the opening in it’s similarity to “King Kong” which came out the following year. Dr. Moreau would not have felt out of place on Skull Island, other than the fact that he would have to have complete control over it’s denizens.

The opening credits caught my eye with a curiosity I don’t think I’ve seen before. In addition to listing the principals, there was mention of ‘The Panther Woman’. With all the hideous experimentation going on with Dr. Moreau’s (Charles Laughton) private jungle laboratory, I guess I was expecting to see some feline version of all those ape-men, but as it turns out, Lota (Kathleen Burke) looked pretty normal. However the idea behind her creation was a rather stunning concept for the era. Moreau’s intent was to have her impress Edward Parker (Richard Arlen) enough to have them join in siring the next step in his evolutionary experiments. One is haunted by images of bestiality and other deviant behavior, but all of it is intimated rather than brought to the screen. After all, it’s the imagination that sometimes makes these efforts all the more powerful.

With Charles Laughton’s portrayal of Dr. Moreau, I was struck by his uncanny resemblance to Adolf Hitler. This is almost certainly coincidental, since Hitler had just come to power in 1933 and really wasn’t on the world’s radar at the time. However the similarity of Moreau’s ideas to that of Hitler’s concept of a Master Race are rather intriguing. Hitler of course, had his own labs where Nazi scientists conducted their own frightful experiments.

Probably the most surprising aspect of the picture for me was it’s comparatively short run time of just about seventy minutes. However the film packs a lot of suspense for it’s duration; I was particularly intrigued by Bela Lugosi’s recital of ‘The Law’ and it’s application to the beast-men of the island. It had the ring of totalitarianism with Dr. Moreau as the supreme leader, never to be questioned until he violates his own commandment not to spill blood. It’s at that point one considers that perhaps Moreau’s research had attained at least some level of success. He had created beings with the ability to reason, a factor that contributed to his own eventual downfall.
