Handy Mains

Being given a murderer's hands,
You grow livid at certain commands
They insist you throw knives
At assistants and wives,
And you're driven to serve their demands.

Colin Clive is Stephen Orlac, a concert pianist who undergoes a double hand-transplant in Mad Love (Karl Freund; 1935), which was adapted from Maurice Renard's story "Les Mains D'Orlac."
