    Solid and stirring Boris Karloff vehicle that finds him playing a French doctor accused of treason for simply following his Hippocratic oath and is soon exiled to Devil's Island. He runs afoul of the sadistic and corrupt Colonel there and even after saving the man's daughter is only option is escape. Even with a very brief running time this programmer delivers the goods. Karloff well cast as is James Stephenson.
