A hotshot reporter and a young doctor team up to investigate a series of grisly murders and a mysterious sample of synthetic blood.
Humphrey Bogart said of this film: "This is one of the pictures that made me march in to [Warner Bros. studio chief Jack L. Warner] and ask for more money again. You can't believe what this one was like. I had a part that somebody like Bela Lugosi or Boris Karloff should have played. I was this doctor, brought back to life, and the only thing that nourished this poor bastard was blood. If it had been Jack Warner's blood or [Harry Warner's] or [Sam Warner's] maybe I wouldn't have minded as much. The trouble was, they were drinking mine and I was making this stinking movie."
Dr. Mike Rhodes:
Thank you very much.
Walter 'Wichita' Garrett: Well, I hope to see you again sometime.
Undertaker: I'm sure you will!
When Walter "Wichita" Garrett reviews the press clippings, two of them refer to "Eugene Xavier". The rest refer to "Maurice Xavier".
In the opening credits, the three stars' order of billing is Morris, Lane, Bogart. But at the end, Bogart is listed first and Morris third.
