Description by OLDIES.com:

Double dealing Fay Saunders (Wynne Gibson) shoots a police officer during a private club raid and frames her boyfriend for the crime. He has also been shot, but in the frenzied confusion it's not clear exactly what happened. The police dispatcher on the scene, Jim Murray (Kane Richmond), doesn't think Fay's story holds up and decides to get to the bottom of it.

Masterminding a ruse to capture Fay's boss Nick Taggart (John Miljan), Jim goes undercover to infiltrate the notorious gang leader's racketeering operation. For his troubles the besieged officer gets kicked off the force by his father, the chief of police. A mind-boggling twist of double and triple crosses follows, culminating in a perilous ambush by the Taggart gang aimed at Captain Murray unless his son stops the killers.

Often playing a hard-boiled blonde, Wynne Gibson is perfectly cast in crime mysteries such as Double Cross. Other bad girl performances include The Devil is Driving (1932), The Crime of the Century (1933), The Gangs of New York (1938), A Man's World (1942) and The Mystery Broadcast (1943), her last movie.

Kane Richmond is best known for his heroics in several film serials, include the celebrated Spy Smasher (1942), in which the handsome actor plays dual roles. Richmond also appeared in The Lost City (1935), The Adventures of Rex and Rinty (1935) and Flash Gordon's Trip to Mars (1938).
