Mannequin's Best Friend

Although she is only a dummy,
Doc Gogol, the troll, thinks she's yummy
When he looks on Yvonne
The poor schnook gets turned on
And so, takes her home to get chummy.

In Mad Love (Karl Freund; 1935), Doctor Gogol (Peter Lorre) is obsessed with Yvonne Orlac (Frances Drake), the star of the Grand Guignol Theatre of Horrors. He's so obsessed that he buys her lookalike dummy to have it near him. Title by limerick-friendly David Cairns.
