So From Headquarters comes the army of crime specialists toxicologists, fingerprint experts, ballistic experts, technicians running data-card tabulations on Hollerith machines and, for good measure, authorities on the use of invisible ink that know the howdunit can point to the who. George Brent and Eugene Pallette portray the lead crime dogs in this swift sniff-out of a killer that sifts through murderous means and motives at an engagingly pell-mell pace. William Dieterle (A Midsummer Nights Dream, The Hunchback of Notre Dame), on his way to A-list prominence, directs with great visual hubbub and flourish.t color="blue"& **Please be aware that this is a manufactured on demand disc that was created using a DVD-R disc.
