Monday’s Maniac: Kane
You know who doesn’t get enough love? Movie maniacs that’s who doesn’t get enough love. For some of them not getting enough love as a child is what the problem is. Okay and maybe for others it was too much love as kid. That is just the sort of statement that would probably set them off. What the hell is wrong with you anyway? This week’s Maniac is brought to you by the movie Haunted Harbor.
Without further ado we give love to the baddie Carter/Kane.
(He’s the one with the gun.)
Back story: Kane (Roy Barcroft) is an ex convict who concocts a clever plan to net himself a fortune in gold aboard a scuttled schooner. He goes to banker Voorhees for backing, but when Voorhees attempts a double cross, Kane murders him and the death is blamed on Captain Jim Marsden, owner of the sunken schooner. Kane has sunk the schooner off of Haunted Island, and is using a fake sea monster to scare off curious natives while he salvages the gold and remelts it. He concocts evil plots and has his loyal henchmen carry them out.
