Blackie and the Keystone Cops again...good entry in the series...
Blackie is on the trail of a hot diamond stolen from an exhibit and helps the police locate the stolen gem. CHESTER MORRIS enters the film in disguise as a dotty old professor and there's a surprising appearance by DOROTHY MALONE as a switchboard operator in what was apparently one of her earliest films.
But it's blonde JANIS CARTER who has her eye on keeping track of Boston Blackie, looking as trim and attractive as ever as a newspaper reporter forever looking for a good scoop.
The plot revolves around recovery of "The Blue Star" with RICHARD LANE as Inspector Farraday and GEORGE S. STONE as "The Runt". WILLIAM WRIGHT is the principal bad guy whom Blackie convinces that the stolen gem is a fake, leading to the final unwinding of events and a snappy conclusion.
One of the better Columbia entries in the series.
