A small-time street huckster becomes a radio personality, making a name for himself by broadcasting a football despite efforts to keep him out. He loses favor when he fakes a broadcast interview, so desperately tries a new stunt, trying to reach crash survivors in a remote forest during a live transmission. Written by
Blowhard Philip Gabney becomes a smash radio announcer, until he is canned from the station for a fake broadcast and tries to resume his on air status by attempting a dangerous stunt. Very weak on plot development, but obviously this was done by Universal to promote various radio, vaudeville, and singing stars of the day. Many of the segments from the movie to be done for a radio listening audience seem more suited to a visual mode. Of note, this is the second movie to team Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi, even though they don't appear on screen at the same time and are in for a few seconds. Rating, 3 of 10.
