Comedy! Crime! Mystery! Romance! Thrills! All in one movie! Rival newspaper reporters (Ginger Rogers and Lyle Talbot) join forces to solve a series of murders being committed in an apartment building in this early talkie from M.H. Hoffman Inc., a low budget production company known for, you guessed it, comedy, crime, mystery, romance and thrills! The screenplay, incidentally, was by Frances Hyland, the first female writer employed by Universal Studios, who went on to write such films as Girl from Avenue A, and Charlie Chan in Reno. (BW)
