Hell-Bent Double

A once supple young actress, bent double
All puffed up, like her back has a bubble
Tries to straighten, in vain
All that weight is a strain
She might rupture, spine cracking to rubble.

Jane "Poni" Adams portrays the hunchbacked Nina in House of Dracula (Erle C. Kenton; 1945). Title by hellboychik David Cairns.
