Unusual Theme for a film
26 March 2014 | by (london) – See all my reviews

Robert Beatty plays a seaman with a gammy leg who is fired because he is not considered fit for sea duties.He has healing hands and decides to go into osteopathy.He meets Felix Aylmer ,one of the members of the governing body and enrols in the course.He has to take on night work to cover the cost of his studies.He lodges with Charles Victor.his daughter,Carol Raye,is disabled.Eventually he decides to practice on her and hey presto she is cured and can walk again.They decide to marry.Beatty doesn't wait for the end of his course but sets up in practice.A beautiful young lady,daughter of a doctor,played by Nova Pilbeam,persuades him to set up a practice in Harley Street.Unfortunately at this point the film goes into overdrive as clichéd melodrama.Success goes to his head and he has an affair with Pilbeam.However he decides that he cannot continue with Pilbeam.She then commits suicide.Beatty is heavily criticised at the inquest.So he gives up his practice and goes back to the coast with his wife.She suffers an accident on a boating trip which renders her disabled again.Beatty has to be persuaded at length to go back to his profession and cure his wife.Eventually he does and they all live happily ever after. The most interesting aspect of this film is the way that osteopathy was perceived at the time.Some clearly regarded it as quackery whilst others a wonder cure where doctors have failed.As someone who regularly uses an osteopath for back pain I can say that they are able to relieve problems,though not necessarily on a permanent basis and they are certainly not the miracle workers suggested by this film.
