Morning Call

Strange Case of Dr. Manning

1957

Arthur Crabtree
Director
Republic Pictures
Studio

Police procedural about a doctor who is kidnapped for ransom.

Decent enough film, and probably accurate as far as intruding reporters, attention-seeking cranks and greedy witnesses go. Gynt's whiny distraught wife wears out her welcome quickly, though.
