The story concerns a man who assumes his dead brother's identity and becomes a renowned surgeon despite not having completed medical school.



The film's original script involved a playboy medical student who performs an unspecified operation on his girlfriend before earning his medical degree. The girl dies from the botched operation and his foster brother takes the blame. The Hays Office objected because it believed that audiences would assume that the operation was an abortion. In response, Warner Bros. changed the script to provide a specific cause for the operation. In the revised script, the two lovers argue and the girl is injured when she tumbles down the stairs. Originally Boris Karloff played a small role in the film as a surgeon, which was cut from the film by censors, and the Karloff footage no longer exists.[3]


According to Warner Bros. records, the film earned $460,000 domestically and $181,000 foreign.[1]
