9780020165804: Professor Dowell's Head

Professor Dowell and his assistant surgeon Dr. Kern are working on medical problems including life support in separated body parts. Dr. Kern kills Dowell (in a set up car / asthma accident). Professor Dowell's head is now kept alive and used by Dr. Kern for extraction of scientific secrets; however, his new assistant, the medically-trained Marie Laurent, discovers the ploy and is dismayed; to keep her from exposing him, Kern eventually gets her imprisoned in a false lunatic asylum for undesirables. Continuing his experiments, Dr. Kern transplants the head of a young woman to a new body. That body belongs to the girlfriend of a friend of Dowell's son, who recognizes her body when the young woman flees Dr. Kern's laboratory. Together, Dowell's son and his friend free Marie Laurent. Dr. Kern is anxious to announce himself as the inventor. But Dowell's son and Marie Laurent help his father's head get in front of the cameras and reveal the truth. The head of professor Dowell tells everything and dies. Dr. Kern, disgraced, commits suicide.
