| BORIS KARLOFF IS A TAVERN OWNER!
This film is a great classic and a play by George M. Cohan(creator of "Yankee Doodle Dandy") Three big city gangsters led by John Madison (Chester Morris)(Played Boston Blackie in the 1940's) has his headquarters in a Chinese tavern owned by Nikko(Boris Karloff) and he receives a percentage. The other members of the gang are The Frog(John Wray),a fake cripple, and Helen Smith(Sylvia Sidney(Fantasy Island '98 TV Series), Madison's girl. Nikko tries to win the heart and affection of Helen, Madison's girl and almost gets killed. The gangsters perform fake Miracle's and causes many problems. The film was a remake of a 1919 silent film. It is very well produced. There is a scene where real handicapped people are really cured which turns this film into a great old time classic, with Karloff playing a different role than the Frankenstein Monster in 1931.
