Bill Bailey is a Los Angeles bail bondsman who lives in a world of complete, casual corruption, where all he has to do is pick up the phone to get the charges against a client dismissed. He falls in love with slumming socialite who bluntly and startlingly declares her sexual preferences with this immortal line: "If I could find a man who would be my master and give me a good thrashing, I'd follow him around like a dog on a leash."
The only difference between a liberal and a conservative man is, that a liberal recognizes the existence of vice and controls it, while a conservative just turns his back and pretends it doesn't exist.

When I looked at Nina Mae McKinney's filmography list on this site, it listed this movie as among her credits as "Rebecca, Ruby's maid". But the black woman playing such a maid-ID'd as Jessica, by the way-didn't look like her. So I looked at the TCM site link on Wikipedia for this movie and TCM ID'd Theresa Harris as playing in the movie as simply "maid". Since there's no other domestic servant in the film, I'm guessing that's indeed Ms. Harris. Anyway, this was quite a dramatically thrilling movie starring George Bancroft as bail bondsman Bill Bailey. He's mixed with thrill-seeking Frances Dee as Elaine Talbart, Judith Anderson's Ruby Darling, and Chick Chandler as her brother, Drury. This movie lacks a movie score which is probably to the pic's benefit. So that's a recommendation of Blood Money.
