Based on a popular radio program, O'Keefe plays a novice DA fresh out of law school. When he botches up the case, O'Keefe is assigned to tracking down a former politician, Lorre, who had vanished four years earlier with a large payoff. He is assisted by newspaper reporter Rice, who traces

the money to a showgirl. Aware of the threat to his safety, Lorre contacts Watson for assistance, but is double-crossed by Watson, who fears for his own reputation. Except for Lorre's brief appearance, this picture has little going for it; the direction is ill-paced, and the script bumbling. Two

sequels followed, THE CARTER CASE (1941) and SECRETS OF THE UNDERGROUND (1943).

Coming Soon

Because it's never too early to plan Thursday night... two months from now.
