Richard Dix stars as Chief Bryan...an honest and hard-working cop who is hiding a secret. What he doesn't know is that the next in line for his job, Kirby, is a scum-bag and is working with a gang of car and tire thieves*. When a special investigator comes to town, Kirby and his cut-throat friends set up the Chief and make it look as if he's working with the gang. Can the investigator, the Chief's loyal assistant (Lon Chaney) or his loving secretary (Wendy Barrie) manage to put the pieces together and learn the truth?
This is a reasonably enjoyable film with lots of twists. It also features Lon Chaney is a particularly good part as a friend who wouldn't mind using a bit of torture to get to the truth! And, since the film came out shortly after Chaney's breakout role in "The Wolf Man", he is prominently featured in the opening credits. Nothing genius about this film--just a solidly entertaining B-type picture that keeps you guessing.
