Isle of the Dead (1945) is a horror film made for RKO Radio Pictures by producer Val Lewton. The movie had a script inspired by the painting Isle of the Dead by Arnold Böcklin, which appears behind the title credits, though the film was originally titled "Camilla" during production. (Another of Lewton's films, I Walked With a Zombie, has the painting hung in the main room of the movie.) It was written by frequent Lewton collaborator Ardel Wray and directed by Mark Robson. It was the fourth of five pictures Robson directed for Lewton and starred Boris Karloff. Karloff would work on two other pictures with Lewton, although the Isle of the Dead came out of second.
