The 'magnificent obsession' that was the secret of the famous Dr. Hudson's success - a newly interpreted Christian teaching - was put into practice at Dr. Hudson's death by the young man who became his successor as a brain-specialist, Bobby Merrick. Bobby, by continuing his 'personality-investments' in the way of secret philanthropies, as advocated by Dr. Hudson's formula, miraculously succeeds, and makes a famous surgical invention with which he is able to save the life of the woman he loves.
