Creaky first talkie by Hitch in the days before they realised that some silent stars didn't have the voice to cut it in the new format – in this case Ondra, a good actor whose problem was that, being Czech, she didn't sound English. The plot revolves around a police inspector who is blackmailed when he covers up his girlfriend's involvement in a murder. Alternates between the very stagey and moments of promise from the master.
