The Surgeon's Knife Reviews

Houston is a lower-class individual who manages to climb the ladder of success with his surgical skills. However, an error on his part causes a patient to die in surgery. In order to save his reputation, the doctor kills the two people present at the operation. He gets carried away with his murderous success and prepares to do in his wife, but he is killed himself before he can carry out this nefarious plan. Standard melodrama without enough suspense to be terrifying.
