This B film from Monogram looks like it was butchered in the editing which was
typical for the poverty row studios. But reading between the lines you'll find a
decent plot and the kind of method of homicide usually reserved for authors like
Arthur Conan Doyle.
The District Attorney falls over dead attending a prize fight and first it's thought
to be heart failure. Before attending the fight he made a radio speech saying
that he was about to bring in an indictment, The 13th Man he's brought to
trial for racketeering and he gives some possibilities in the speech.
It's not natural causes of course that kills the DA and Walter Winchell like
columnist Weldon Heyburn and his leg man Milburn Stone are on the trail.
Stone makes a fatal discovery for him and it gets real personal for Heyburn
Some familiar character players will be seen. Best of all is Dewey Robinson
who usually played good natured mugs. He's a former prizefighter who due
to a ring accident has been left with a lilting tenor and now has a new career
in radio. Hearing him sing Will You Remember Me with the dubbed tenor is
Worth seeing the film for.
