the Substitute Face"
DirectorWilliam D. Russell
StoryErle Stanley Gardner's 1938 novel
The scene opens with that beautiful
shot of Perry and Della on board a luxury liner returning
from a case in Vancouver. The dreamy-eyed vision of the
two looking out over the ocean is broken by a desperate
woman in need of help. Perry must defend her for the
murder of her husband. He starts by investigating that
"strange man" on board who was in a wheelchair,
his face wrapped in bandages.
