l. x 100 lines—3C0O lines
A hate racket has moved into town causing the supposed suicide of a printer of pamphlets connected with it. Assistant District Attorney Howard Malloy (Franchot Tone) discards the suicide theory of the police.
His suspicions are based on the findings of an energetic newspaper columnist, Charlie Riggs (Myron McCormick), who is ruthlessly exposing this new mob. Malloy happens to be engaged to Riggs’ sister, Caroline (Betty Harper). He is doubly anxious to break this racket when Riggs also is murdered.
Riggs’ paper, aroused by this horrible crime, calls for a special prosecutor, and Mrs. Hartley
(Winifred Lenihan) , wife of the late Judge Hartley, —
who for vears has been leading the fight for civic betterment, suggests that the District Attorney appoint Malloy for the job.
Malloy finds the poster of a_ beautiful girl among Charlie Riggs’ possessions. He feels that this poster is his first clue. It leads him first to the artist name Kosterich (Hedley Rainnie) who had painted the girl, then to a man called ‘Angel” Angostini’ (Marc Lawrence). The “Angel” is a ward heeler who runs a political club, but Malloy has reason to suspect that he is the brains behind the racket. His clue eventually leads him also io the girl on the poster, Barbara Whitfield (Jean Wallace), who is now singing at The Blue Angel.
Barbara has heen given orders to leave town by the “Angel.” She knows too much. Malloy visits her and warns her that she is being used as a tool for the Angel. She savagely attacks him, realizing that he, too, has been using her. He falls, hits his head against a fireplace, and is unconscious when Mrs. Hartley opens the door suddenly and shoots Barbara.
Kosterich arrives at the apartment a few moments later, and Mrs. Hartley hides, but can hear everything they say. Malloy regains consciousness and frightens Kosterich into telling him the truth. Kosterich accuses Mrs. Hartley of being the leader of the racket. He has stolen papers from her home for blackmailing purposes, that will incriminate her, the “Angel” and everybody involved. These papers are now hidden behind a painting at the Contemporary Museum.
Kosterich and Malloy go to the museum. But Mrs. Hartley had slipped from the apartment ahead of them and is already there. So is the
“Angel” and his henchmen, who had _ followed
her. Malloy arrives just as Mrs. Hartley retrieves the papers. But first he encounters the “Angel” and shoots him down in the ensuing fight. When Mrs. Hartley sees Malloy, she atempts to kill him, but he shoots first.
