Movie Quote(s):
  • Dr. Ziska: Rigo, a patient - I keep him in a trance. Sometimes he gets out - does terrible things. Dr. Ziska: A strange case - but I deal in strange cases! Dr. Ziska: I have only one guest chamber - but no doubt we can make the gentlemen comfortable. Dr. Ziska: Caliban - see that the guests have the USUAL attention! Dr. Ziska: My servant - don't allow him to frighten you - the poor creature is dumb!
  • Doctor Edwards: I am Dr. Edwards - the owner of this sanitarium. Doctor Edwards: We were overpowered and imprisoned here by my patients. Our lives are in constant peril.
  • Doctor Edwards: Ziska, who was once a famous surgeon, controls the others... Doctor Edwards: Caliban imagines he's Ziska's slave - Rigo is dangerous, while Dan is quite harmless ... Doctor Edwards: They must have built those devilish traps and devices after they imprisoned us.
  • Opening Dialogue Card: A human monster watched with cat-like eyes for victims.
  • Betty Watson: How can I ever be worthy of a wonderful man like you? Johnny Goodlittle, the under clerk: Use your ingenuity.
Movie Trivia:
  • The original play opened in New York on 9 August 1922 and had 101 performances. Walter James originated his movie role as Calaban in the play. In the 1933 revival, DeWolf Hopper Sr. played Dr. Ziska.
