This low budget series of films starring Warner Baxter, (Robert Ordway) were great on the radio years ago and when the radio audiences could actually go to their local movies in town, it was great for them to see these Crime Doctor films. This type of film was usually shown along with another feature film a newsreel of current events in the world and then a few cartoons. In this film, Dr. Robert Ordway had a few lectures to give in Paris and managed to get himself involved with a murder and then an Art Dealer scheme to sell fake Classic Pictures of art for just imitation prints for large sums of money. Dr. Ordway is rewarded for his efforts to an antique foot warmer for his bed. End of Story.
