The beautiful Jean Harlow is a patient who is examined by doctor Bryant Washburn. His nervousness intensifies when she pulls his head down to her chest to listen to her heartbeat. His stethoscope appears to have an erection too when he attempts to place it on her chest and it rises up to her neck. She guides his hand to the appropriate spot, very close to her exposed cleavage. He is clearly flustered by her actions which are highlighted when his blood pressure becomes unstable. Sadly this is all the footage that I was able to review from this film....
