Plot & Details

Undercover Doctor, like the other entries in Paramount's "FBI" series, could lay claim to being "drawn from today's headlines." The film was loosely based on the career of Dr. Joseph P. Moran, who violated the ethics of his profession by tending to the gunshot wounds of gangster Eddie Krator (Broderick Crawford) and his cronies without reporting those wounds to the police. J. Carrol Naish plays Dr. Bartley Morgan, who covers up his profitable illegalities with the respectable veneer of a posh, highly profitable private practice. FBI agent Robert Anders (Lloyd Nolan) is surprisingly slow on the uptake, never catching on to Morgan's illicit activities until the film is three-quarters over. Heather Angel costars as a socialite who doesn't pick her friends too well, while Janice Logan, future costar of Paramount's Dr. Cyclops, fills the nominal heroine role as Dr. Morgan's nurse.
