Although the character played by John Litel is named "Three Fingers" in the Variety review, in the film he is called "Emilio Caspari." This was the first picture in Columbia's "Crime Doctor" series, which was based on the CBS radio program of the same name. The radio show was broadcast from 1940-1947, and over the years, Ray Collins, House Jameson, Everett Sloane and John McIntire portrayed Robert Ordway, the "Crime Doctor." The Columbia series ran from 1943-1949 and consisted of ten films, all starring Warner Baxter as Ordway. Rudolph Flothow was the producer of all but the first film, which were produced by Darmour, Inc. for Columbia.
