Agony and Ivory

On piano it flailed, played a chord
In a panic, it's nailed to a board
Its premiere thus curtailed,
Its career was derailed
For the hand simply failed to record.
Peter Lorre nails The Beast With Five Fingers (Robert Florey; 1946). Title by David Cairns, who agonizes over his film blog, Shadowplay.
