In the 8th film of Columbia's "Crime Doctor" series, Dr. Robert Ordway is vacationing in the Blue Ridge Mountains district of West Virginia when a typhoid epidemic breaks out. Three deaths occur with the first two being typhoid-caused but the death of the third person, Ward Beachey, is a case of poisoning. Orday learns that Beachey was the town Romeo with many enemies and that most of those had access to the poison. Doc Millerson, who has a suspicion who the guilty party is, receives a note in a woman's handwriting requesting a meeting at the river bank. He goes there and is killed in an ambush by a rifle shot. Following the note as a clue, Ordway visits the house of Ezra Minnich and traps Minnich's young daughter into confessing that her father made her write the note. Minnich confesses he had killed Beachey for trying to break up his home and Doc Millerson because he suspected him.Written by

As fine a collection of players who are cast as rustics is in The Millerson Case as
Warner Baxter goes to the Piedmont area of North Carolina for some hunting
and fishing. Instead he gets involved in solving two murders.
At first it's only an epidemic of typhoid where three deaths have occurred. But
Baxter proves one of these deaths was not typhoid but a poisoning. The
deceased was Trevor Bardette the local barber who pursues half the married
woman around. Makes for a town full of suspects. Later the locsal doctor is
also killed when he suspects something.
Another in Columbia's Crime doctor series wrapped in good economical style.
est in the cast is Clem Bevans as the sheriff. It's almost mandatory that he be in rustic film settings.
