Good Universal mystery
A truly interesting plot elevates this low budget mystery to a B-movie classic. Stone confesses to crimes he did not commit. Then he murders an old enemy he suspects was responsible for his wife's death. He confesses to this crime and the police do not believe him. Familiar 30s actors all over this one. Nice job by everyone.
