The Black Room (1935) Prophecy has it that younger twin Anton will kill brother Gregor in the castle's Black Room. Anton returns to the castle after a 10 year hiatus. Gregor, a Baron, has many attempts on his life as his subjects detest his tyranny. However, good natured Anton earns the subjects' respect, and the admiration of Col.Hassel, uncle of the beautiful Thea. When Gregor kills young servant Mashka, his subjects storm the castle to remove him. Devious Gregor renounces his title in favour of brother Anton to appease them. He then kills Anton to assume his identity and the Baronship again. He is free to pursue Thea with Col.Hassel's blessing. When Col.Hassel discovers Gregor's impersonation, he also meets death. With Thea's true love, Lt. Lussan, wrongfully convicted of Hassel's murder, it appears nothing can stop evil Gregor from ambushing her into marriage. But what of that prophecy?

Movie Quote(s):
  • Baron de Berghman: This house began with murder. It will end the same way. [Reading from the coat-of-arms] Baron de Berghman: "Principio Et Finem Similia." I end as I began!
  • Mashka: Don't you want to kiss me? Baron Gregor de Bergmann: [Cutting a juicy pear with his knife and eating it as he talks] A pear is the best fruit! Mashka: Every time you see her, you want to be rid of me. Baron Gregor de Bergmann: [Seemingly ignoring her] Lots of juice in a pear! Baron Gregor de Bergmann: Well, you'll find out I'll not be got rid of so easily! Do you hear what I say? Baron Gregor de Bergmann: Adam should've chosen a pear. Mashka: You've got it all planned, haven't you? You're gonna marry her. You're gonna make her your wife, your baroness! Baron Gregor de Bergmann: I like the feel of a pear! And when you're through with it... [He carelessly tosses it across the room]
  • Baron Gregor de Bergmann: [as Anton lies dying in the well of the Black Room] Goodbye, brother. There's nothing to fear now. The prophecy can't be fulfilled. Anton de Bergmann: [With certitude] It will be fulfilled! Baron Gregor de Bergmann: Perhaps you will come back from the dead to kill me? Anton de Bergmann: [Dying words] Even from the dead!
  • Col. Paul Hassel: [Playing chess] Your attack is weak as your brother Gregor's was brilliant. Chess, by the way, was the only virtue I ever discovered in him. Baron Gregor de Bergmann: I received a letter today from him from Warsaw. Most of it was devoted to begging me to send his love to you, Colonel. Col. Paul Hassel: His love to me? Well, if I have to accept it, I'd rather have it by post than any way I can think of.
