Almost a shot-for-shot remake of "Public Hero #1" (1935)
Anyone else realize that this is almost a shot-for-shot remake of "Public Hero #1" staring Jean Arthur and Chester Morris (1935)? With Lionel Barrymore playing the doctor and Joseph Calleia playing Sonny.
It also appears the same screenplay was used for both pictures as the writing credits overlap. Different directors though
Public Hero #1 (1935) : Directed by J. Walter Ruben. Writing credits: J. Walter Ruben story, Wells Root story, Wells Root screenplay
The Get-Away (1941) : Directed by Edward Buzzell , Richard Rosson (uncredited). Writing credits: W.R. Burnett screenplay, Wells Root screenplay, Wells Root story, J. Walter Ruben story
Having seen both pictures, I think the 1935 Jean Arthur/Chester Morris effort is the better of the two. Anyone who likes "The Get-Away' should checkout "Public Hero #1".
