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".
