This film features much of the principal cast of the previous year's wildly profitable and successful Dracula (1931), including David Manners, Edward Van Sloan and Bela Lugosi. The studio sought to emphasize this connection to Dracula, most notably by giving Lugosi top billing despite his small supporting role. See more »
About 12 minutes into the movie Franklyn Drew digs a bullet out of the wall and identifies it as a ".38 caliber center fire." It is impossible to tell from the bullet alone whether it was fired from a center fire or rim fire cartridge. Such a claim could lead to confusion in identifying the gun that fired the bullet.

Not bad little cheapie, an early talkie about a murder in a movie studio. Enough clues to go on, some good red herrings, and only a couple of holes in the plot. Of course, to film buffs, Lugosi is the main attraction, but his part is small and his accent distracts. Interesting peeks at working movie company in the 30s.
