This post is part of the For the Love of Film: The Film Preservation Blogathon hosted by Ferdy on Films, This Island Rod, and Wonders in the Dark. This year’s theme is science-fiction, and we’ll be leaning hard toward the “mad science” portion of the genre. Hope you enjoy, and please click on the link above and donate to help restore the silent film, Cupid in Quarantine. The goal is to raise $10,000. Give what you can, won’t you? Thank you!

And here we have a couple of Paul Henreid helmed shock-sock-o-ramas about some very bad girls doing some very bad things. First up, an all girl-gang of payroll robbers, including the lovely Mara Corday, have to silence their inside gal when she gets a little too chummy with the cops, which results in quite the blood bath. Then, we head down the very same road to hell and ruination when another girl gang of jewel thieves’ luck finally runs out.
