Handsome action hero George Larkin both co-wrote (with Lloyd Lonergan) and starred in this independently produced adventure serial released by Arrow. Larkin played Donald Britt, who, in an act of desperation, has sold the rights to his brain after death to a professor (William Bechtel). The good doctor is not a patient man, however, and Britt must spend the serial's remaining 14 chapters avoiding premature dissection. Pretty Anna Luther, of Newark, NJ, played Larkin's girlfriend whose brain was not quite as desirable, but who nevertheless got herself into almost just as many scrapes as her swain.
