The film, which includes a rare leading role for Patrick who played the supporting part of Sam Spade's secretary in The Maltese Falcon that same year, is based on the 1932 novel Miss Pinkerton by Mary Roberts Rinehart.
A nurse (Lee Patrick) moves into a mansion after an apparent suicide to care for the old mother. The mother is kind of spooky, but so is the butler, and the girlfriend, and the doctor. After the insurance policy is found, the plot thickens.
