COMPLETE FILMOGRAPHY WITH SYNOPSIS
Cast (feature film)
A mad scientist''''s attempts to revive the dead go haywire when he runs into a voodoo priestess.
This George Morris story (screenplay by George Wallace Sayre) was based on an article that appeared in "Woman's Home Companion" and later reprinted in "Reader's Digest." Eddie Condon (Kane Richmond), a two-bit racketeer, teams up with an alcoholic doctor, Judson (Ralph Morgan), to set up a maternity home with free facilities to expectant mothers, with the proviso that the women sign away all rights to their new-borns. The babies are then offered for adoptation to couples willing to make a substantial "contribution" to the home. Things go well for this borderline within-the-law business until a baby is still-born. Conden had already sold the baby for $5,000 and has no intention of returning the money, so he substitutes the child of the sister (Teala Loring) of his wife (Jayne Hazard). There is a slip-up on the filing of the certificates and the District Attorney's office gets involved.
At a convention, medical researcher Michel Touzac goes with colleagues to see stage caricaturist Targel, whose assistant Florence recognizes him...and attempts suicide.
