Summary
The film takes inspiration from the true-life story of Dr. William Morton, a dedicated dentist who discovers ether, otherwise known as anesthesia, in 1846. The doctor's great contribution to humanity, the tribulations he later faced sharing his knowledge, and his reluctance to capitalize on his discovery, are meticulously laced with typical Preston Sturges humor and drama
