The Doctor’s Daughter and the Escaped Convict

Warren Hull, the escaped convict in this desert adventure, was the 23rd grandson of King Henry II and also of Robert de Vere, better remembered as Robin Hood. His parents were Quakers living in the Niagara Falls area of New York, and his father was a wealthy president of a manufacturing company. He acted in a 1938 movie serial called “The Spider’s Web,” as Richard Wentworth, aka “The Spider,” that inspired a comic book company to create the ‘Spider Man’ superhero.

Isabel Jewell, the female leading actor in the adventure, was born in Shoshoni, Wyoming, on a large ranch owned by her wealthy father, who was a doctor and medical researcher. In this adventure she is Linda Harkness, the daughter of a doctor and medical researcher.

The Joe Mellon gang has just busted out of prison, and Bill ‘Lefty’ Carver wants to break free from the gang and begin a new life without crime. He was on his way to becoming a doctor when he naively took a one-day job as a driver for Joe Mellon. What he didn’t know was that his job as a driver made him part of a bank robbery, and now he is a convicted gangster on the run from the law.

His race to get as far away from the Eastern prison gets him to the small, sleepy town of Tempe, Arizona, where he will try to build a new life with a new name. Unfortunately, the gangsters he escaped with will hold up the little Tempe bank, and he will once again be on the run in the sizzling desert outside Tempe, when the town folk believe that he must have been the front man for the bank robbery.

Now he is in a race for his life, with gangsters and lawmen on his trail. If the desert sun doesn’t get him, the gangsters might get him, and if they don’t get him, the law men certainly will. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
