I'm not sure if being lucky and being Irish go hand in hand, but that proposition is certainly tested in this Monogram Picture with hotel employees Frankie Darro bellhop and Mantan Moreland janitor solve a couple of murders and break up a bond theft ring.
This hotel that employs Darro and Moreland is being used as the drop and pickup spot for stolen bonds. Being set up as those taking the fall are brother and sister Dennis Moore and Sheila Darcy. As their name is Monahan they can't possibly be guilty according to Darro as Buzzy O'Brien and his sainted Irish mother Lillian Elliott.
Darro is the son of a police detective and can't wait to get on the force, so much so he's finding mysteries to solve where he works. It's all to the distraction of his father's friend on the force Dick Purcell who has a relationship to Darro similar to Chief Clifford and Sam McCloud.
Irish Luck hasn't worn well over the years and Mantan Moreland's eye rolling janitor is especially not wearing well. He seems to be warming up for playing Birmingham Brown on the Charlie Chan series.
I doubt we'll see this one restored any time soon.
