Patrick Knowles stars as Lance O' Leary a detective who didn't solve his last case so he is on the verge of a nervous breakdown.
He is sent to a private hospital for relaxation and instead he finds himself up to his eyeballs in murder. O' Leary starts to spend time with a nurse that works in the hospital by the name of Sara Keate (Ann Sheridan).
Lance is called upon in the hospital to solve the murder of several people over a mysterious package of radium. The film runs just under an hour and so it has to move quickly, which it does.
It is a light weight film that really doesn't take itself too seriously and it plays much like an "old dark house" thriller, but set in a swanky private hospital.
The cast does their best with the roles they have and Knowles is perfect for his. The rest of the cast includes Eric Stanley, Charles Trowbridge and John Ridgley.
The print from Warner Archive is very good, and again, I can recommend this to any 30's mystery fan. Good fun.
