| Top Hoot Bottom Melford
An excellent Hoot Gibson programmer in which he plays a confidence man posing as a lawyer selling phony law books. When a murder takes place, he is called in to defend the accused man. Al Bridge is also excellent as the sheriff looking for exculpatory evidence.

The direction is credited to George Melford, one of the best visual stylists of the silent era, but he shows little flair here. There is no camera movement, but he does have some fun with the cuts.
