A review of the film in the January 13, 1951 issue of the monthly Journal of the American Medical Association, notes that the “motion picture portrays the chance discovery of cancer of the larynx, the subsequent confirmation of diagnosis and the preoperative training by both the surgeon and former patients. The postoperative visits by persons who have learned the new way to speak, the formal training programs at the speech clinic and the first visit to the Lost Chord Club meeting, give encouragement and training instructions in the development of the new voice. The film shows in detail the facets which are important in case management, including the careful preparation of the patient for his postoperative life with explanations from the surgeon and demonstrations of successful rehabilitation by contacts with the actual case. A section of the film illustrates the surgical procedure. The postoperative rehabilitation program is explained, showing the stages in the training and the final successful adjustment of the case." The film was produced in two versions: a technical version and a training version. The version presented here is the training version. The training version does not contain the operation sequence and was intended for showing to preoperative and postoperative patients. The film was produced under the supervision of the Staff Committee on Speech at the Cleveland [Ohio] Hearing and Speech Center.
