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." See more
Although Wayne Morris is billed as "Walter Barnett", he is called "Walter Garrett" in the film. See more
