| Great Crime Doctor's Films
This film starring Warner Baxter as Dr. Robert Ordway was outstanding with people wanting plastic surgery and the skin on their fingers be remove in order to avoid fingerprinting. Karl Ganss, (Martin Kosleck) is an undertaker and shady character who often played roles in WW II films as a Nazi, gave an outstanding performance. In this story, Dr. Ordway is visited by a neighbor across his street to help a man who has fainted at their party. Ordway finds out the man is diabetic and needs a shot of insulin and injects him, he revives and then quickly dies, placing Ordway as his killer. Many people are murdered and Dr. Ordway manages to impersonate a murderer who was at large from Indianaoplis, Indinia. There are many twists and turns and it will be very hard to figure out who is responsible for all these crimes committed.
