| Use Woodbury to Soap Away Those Spots
This is a zippy little comedy-mystery as Joan Woodbury honestly alibis nightclub owner Bradley Page and the police, in the person of Alan Lane, try to break her story. The cast includes Jack Carson in an early sizable role and Cecil Kellaway. It is headlined by Parkyakarkus, a popular dialect comedian of the era. The movie moves along at a good clip. Only Joan Woodbury is less than excellent, and she's pretty bad.

Longtime director Christy Cabanne, usually held to be the least of D.W. Griffith's disciples was near the end of his string of good B movies for major studios at this point. Shortly he would retreat into westerns and cheap independent productions like the 'Scattergood Baines' series, but here, given a bit of a budget, he shows us a good short feature with lots of classical camera movement.
