Description by OLDIES.com:
A writer bets a friend that he can write a 10,000-word novel in 24 hours. The friends takes the bet and gives him the only key to his Baldpate Inn, which is closed for the winter, so he can write in complete seclusion. Things start heating up, though, when a succession of people who also have keys to the inn begin showing up.
The earliest film version of George M. Cohan's famous stage play, in which a mystery writer retreats to a spooky house to complete a novel in one marathon session. Remakes abound, including 1982's "House of the Long Shadows."
