To gain listeners for his radio station, Bogart's boss, Middlemass, digs up a 20-year-old murder case and tells Bogart to broadcast the story as a serial. MacKellar is the woman who was exonerated of the charge originally and went on to marry. She has never mentioned the case to her

daughter (Perry), who is engaged to Moore, the son of a well-to-do manufacturer. Now that her past is being relived for a wide audience, the wedding faces possible cancellation. Unable to live with this, MacKellar and her husband, O'Neill, kill themselves. Bogart, strongly backed by his secretary,

Roberts, has been opposed all along to the broadcasts, but Perry, feeling that Middlemass has in effect murdered her parents, goes to the station to kill him. Fortunately, Moore follows her and deflects her aim before she fires a pistol. The two renew their love and Bogart, who resigns, marries

Roberts. This remake of FIVE STAR FINAL (1931) is a boring venture all around. The screenplay is beefed up only when it directly borrows from the original film; otherwise it lacks any real emotion. Bogart is ineffective in this early lead role, heading a cast that is for the most part without much

energy. Audiences caught on to the film's many shortcomings and this lackluster piece was a poor box-office earner.
