Tod Browning probably didn't have anything to do with this movie
I haven't seen "Inside Job," but I'm writing this because I just watched the 1920 version of "Outside the Law," which Tod Browning directed from an original story which Universal remade twice, first in 1930 (with Browning again as director) and then here. It's almost certain that Browning had nothing to do with making this film after "Miracles for Sale" he well and truly retired and spent the last 23 years of his life (he died in 1962) living in seclusion and uninterested in talking about his films. Most likely Browning is credited here only as the author of the original story and probably Garrett Fort's credit was due solely because he had adapted Browning's story for the 1930 remake and some of his plot devices and dialogue may have ended up in this one as well.
