Underworld king Lee Lother has been killed aboard a ocean liner, several people could have been the murderer. There is his mistress Anya Roysen, a married woman, who was jealous of his flirtations with his old moll, night club singer Sally Marsh, who had agreed for one last night with Lother, to get her younger brother Ned out of the Lother's clutches because he has faked Lother's name on a check to pay his gambling debts. Then there is Sally's new flame Jimmy Brett, a con man and gentlemen thief, who has out-tricked Lother in a fixed poker game, and is, together with shorty, after the ladies jewels. Inspector McKinney suspects Joe Saunders, a recently released convict, who was arrested due to some tips by Lother, but Ned and Sally insist that they committed the crime alone. Written by

Great film from the 30's featuring classic songs by Richard A. Whiting
This is a great film from the golden age of cinema. Jack Benny's Role in this is great. He has great comedic timing with the other cast members as well as some dramatic elements to his character. The best reason that this film is enjoyable today however is the fact that much of the humor in this film is still relevant today. The great screenplay includes jokes and humor that is still funny today. The music composed by Richard A. Whiting is absolutely fantastic. In fact a song that is jokingly credited as the first ever Rock and Roll song is featured in this film by the great Boswell Sisters, called "Rock and Roll." Another humorous thing about this movie is Nancy Carol's striking resemblance to the great actress Claudette Colbert.
