Trivia

As rights to the BIP studio films became public domain soon after they closed in 1939, this film found it's way into the inexpensive early 1950's American film package for television sold by "Atlas Films". Atlas scooped up piles of P-D films like this and chopped off original titles, replacing them with minimal information new titles, often changing the name of the film, in this case, "The Doctor's Secret".
