The Concert Pianist, His Lovely Daughter, and the Mad Scientist

John Naish, of County Limerick, Ireland, was the Lord Chancellor of Ireland. His son Patrick emigrated to the United States, living in New York City. After five years in New York, Patrick had a baby son, who he named Joseph Patrick Carroll Naish. As a teenager, Joseph joined the Navy and saw service during World War One. After the war he roamed the seven seas as a merchant marine. While visiting foreign lands around the world, Joe developed a genius talent for learning new languages and foreign accents.

When Joe was thirty years old, he was on a ship headed for China that stopped in Los Angeles for repairs, but before the ship was repaired and on its way, he was hired by a movie studio. His first credited movie roll was in The Royal Bed in 1931. He rarely got a part that demanded his natural Irish brogue, and quickly became the favorite gangster, villain, or evil scientist, like in this adventure.

As our adventure opens we are in a concert hall, and a famous pianist is playing on stage to a full theater. In the center balcony box, the lovely young daughter of the pianist is watching with her boyfriend. In the box next to them, Dr. Igor Markoff and his assistant Maxine are staring intently at the pianist’s daughter. In fact, they are staring so boldly and openly that the young lady is creeped out, and nervously asks her boyfriend to change seats with her.

It turns out that the daughter of the concert pianist looks exactly like the Doctor’s wife, who died tragically many years ago. The scientist doctor quickly becomes obsessed with the pianist’s daughter, and vows to marry her, no matter what it takes, . . . Yes, I said ‘no matter what it takes.’ Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
