Trivia

John Ford is often credited with co-directing this film, but Ford denied it in interviews with Peter Bogdanovich, crediting his brother Francis Ford as the director. Universal Studios documents bear out that claim, showing that the film was directed solely by Francis, not John. See more »

Man with drinking problem
16 November 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film stars Francis Ford as an alcoholic. I got the impression he was trying to discover a cure for alcoholism but I couldn't be sure. The print has Dutch inter-titles. Ford is a full blown alcoholic in the film. (I now know he had the formula for a powerful explosive. But the alcohol cure is funnier).

This film was long thought to be lost but a print has recently been found in the Netherlands. It can be viewed on the internet. Though it is listed as a horror film, it really isn't one. Ford has hallucinations due to the DTs. And there appear to be ghosts or out of body apparitions but I couldn't be sure due to the language barrier.
