An efficient mystery yarn

Surprising that this very cute little noir has not been commented yet. Taut, fast paced and exciting story of detectives on rampage after a mysterious killer who uses a rare poison from cobras to execute a batch of persons. No length or boring moments, especially this steam bath sequence where one of the murders is committed. I have not seen the other Charles Reisner's features, except two featuring the Marx Brothers and Abbot and Costello. As I have already told in this talk lines, there are many of such little gems, that networks or collectors find from their vaults or attics - DVD, VHS, 16 or 35mm prints concerning the collectors.
