Sustains interest

Nora Brady (Lila Lee) comes up with a scheme to prove that her brother, accused of murder, is innocent. She is helped by a cop, Daniel (Monte Blue), who poses as a gangster in order to get the goods on the real killer.

As with most of these early talkies, you should not expect a major "A" production. Still, this is a fairly good one. The film's 75 minutes zip by thanks to efficient direction by William Beaudine and good performances by the 3 leads. Both Lila Lee and Betty Compson prove why they successfully made the transition to talkies. Story-wise, there's nothing new but it does manage to hold your interest. All in all, a pretty good film.
