Racketeer Tony Gazotti is thankful that lawyer Jackson Durant helps him beat a murder rap, but Durant just does it for the thrill of it and refuses payment. Durant's defense of mobsters causes his firm to disown him and his girlfriend Sue to leave him. But when young Tom Siddall, Sue's new boyfriend, is framed for a murder, she is the first to come asking for Durant's help. Durant uses Gazotti's information network and the help of new girlfriend Gertie Waxted to find that rival gangster Jim Crelliman is involved in the framing of Siddall. When Durant sends Gertie to Crelliman's apartment in a bid to blow open the case, she is walking on thin ice. Written by

The $200,000 "retainer" Crelliman offers Durant would be worth around $3,650,000 in 2016. See more »
When Gertie stands looking out Durant's apartment window, her left arm is up with her hand on her head but, when the shot changes to see her from the front, her arm is down and her hand is resting against the window frame. See more »
Had no idea just what this 1933 film was all about and if I would even
be interested and was greatly surprised at how great it really was way
back when. Warner Baxter,(Jack Durant) played the role of a crooked
Lawyer who was being brought up on criminal charges. Myrna Loy,(Gertie
Waxted) plays the role of a hostess, prostitute and all around well
experienced girl who has been around the block many many times. Mae
Clarke,(Mimi Montagne) gave an outstanding performance in this story
that has many interesting twists and turns that will keep you guessing
just how this picture will end. Myrna Loy did an outstanding
performance and made this a very different kind of film which is not
very well known.
