Storyline

On a lecture/vacation visit to Paris, Dr. Ordway drops in on his friend, the Prefecture of Police. He becomes involved in a case involving the stabbing of an old man. The man's son, not all that mentally stable, believes he killed his own father in a rage because his father disliked his new bride, the daughter of a cabaret knife-thrower. Investigating the case, Ordway finds that the business of the legal copying art masterworks may also be involved. Written by Ron Kerrigan <mvg@whidbey.com>

Crime Doctor Solves More Crimes
5 May 2007 | by whpratt1See all my reviews

This low budget series of films starring Warner Baxter, (Robert Ordway) were great on the radio years ago and when the radio audiences could actually go to their local movies in town, it was great for them to see these Crime Doctor films. This type of film was usually shown along with another feature film a newsreel of current events in the world and then a few cartoons. In this film, Dr. Robert Ordway had a few lectures to give in Paris and managed to get himself involved with a murder and then an Art Dealer scheme to sell fake Classic Pictures of art for just imitation prints for large sums of money. Dr. Ordway is rewarded for his efforts to an antique foot warmer for his bed. End of Story.
