This film only lasts 64 minutes but there are so many holes in the continuity that it would seem as if at least 10 minutes had been taken out of it.Beery plays a gangster in London on holiday.He tries to book into a room in a hotel on New Years Eve which does nt have any free rooms.In one of the rooms a murder is committed.A verdict of suicide is brought in at an inquest,this despite the fact that the victim was shot from about 3 yards away!Beery who had previously befriended the victim decides to solve the murder.the fact that virtually all the action takes place within the hotel is a large clue to the poverty of the production.It is the sort of film that gave quota quickies a bad name.
