An unraveled ending hurts this film about a perfect crime. Bickford is the scorned man whose marriage proposal is turned down by Vinson. To gain revenge, he plots to kill her lover, Blackmer, and implicate Vinson. He succeeds on all counts but then, in a seemingly gallant gesture, takes the

blame for the murder to protect the girl. He even has Blackmer's nephew (John Darrow) convinced that Darrow did it while in a drunken rage. The youth believes he did it and writes a confession admitting his guilt. But wily Stevens is not convinced and in a weak courtroom scene wraps up the

mystery.
