Before he became famous as the “Fatman” in TV’s “Jake and the Fatman”, William Conrad was a fairly prolific director, and one of his best films (to this woman anyway) was 1965’s Two on a Guillotine, which is bowing on DVD for the first time on June 22nd.
Cult favorite suspense/horror film Two on a Guillotine stars Connie Stevens as the daughter of a demented magician played by the iconic Cesar Romero. It has been remastered for this release and is available exclusively via WarnerArchive.com.
Twenty years ago a little accident with a guillotine trick left magician Duke Duquesne’s wife and on-stage assistant without a head … and their baby daughter, Cassie, without a mother. Now The Great Duquesne may have another trick up his sleeve. He dies, leaving Cassie a sizable inheritance if she’ll spend seven nights in his spooky mansion. With a fearless young reporter at her side, Cassie braves terrors that could be the work of evil spirits. Or are they illusions dreamed up by Cassie’s dear, demented dad? Connie Stevens, Dean Jones (in his pre-The Love Bug days), and Cesar Romero star in a creepy horrorfest that offers fans scares, screams, a return of that guillotine, and Max (Gone with the Wind) Steiner’s penultimate score.
