Madhouse Party

In Bedlam they stick all the mad
The headcases, sick, strained and sad
Where their captors abuse
These poor chaps to amuse
People dreadfully wicked and bad.

In Bedlam (Mark Robson; 1946), inmates at an insane asylum are made to perform for the callous upper-class. Boris Karloff stars as George Sims, master of the asylum. Glenn Vernon plays the Gilded Boy (top). Bedlam was the last in the series of stylish B horror films produced by Val Lewton for RKO.
