Finger Feud

When Orlac's poor hands are both crushed
Things look black, his piano is hushed
The ingenious cure
Of a scenery chewer
Drives him wacko, all manic and flushed.

David Cairns

In Mad Love (Karl Freund; 1935), Colin Clive plays Stephen Orlac, a concert pianist who undergoes a double hand-transplant.
