In 'The Man They Could Not Hang' (1939) Karloff plays a scientist who is sentenced to hang for meddling with a young man's life in order to test an artificial heart that he is working on. In 'The Man With Nine Lives' (1940) Dr. Leon Kravaal (Karloff) experiments with cryonics and then disappears for ten years. When he is discovered in a secret chamber along with four colleagues they are allowed to thaw out and come back to life, although legally they remain dead.
