Stephan Brenner may be young, but after his work with a severely injured child and his subsequent efforts with earthquake victims in Italy hes made a name for himself as a skilled, compassionate surgeon. But its actually Karl (Richard Barthelmess),Stephans foster brother, who is the surgeon. And behind Karls use of his brothers identity lies a sentimental tale of secrets, love and sacrifice. Director Michael Curtiz and art director Anton Grot elevated their status at Warner Bros. with Alias theDoctor. Using tilted walls, shadows and other expressionist techniques, Curtiz and Grot made the film a triumph of style and paved the way for their teaming few months later in the eerily atmospheric Doctor X. **Please beaware that this is a manufactured on demand disc that was created using a DVD-R disc.
