Description by OLDIES.com:

America's G-Men have become targets, out-gunned and out-maneuvered by Mexican gold smugglers. Enter Alan O'Connor, a federal agent, with his sweetheart Bobbie Reynolds in tow. The two suspect the gold is from a mine in Los Morados, a small town outside of Mexico City. They become regulars in the Tarentella Cafe where Bobbie shows off her singing talents and Alan eyeballs the local henchmen. Discovering a link to an aviator's gold bricks found by the Department of Justice, they uncover the true location of the mine. As Agent O'Connor goes in for a closer look, Bobbie is kidnapped while the smugglers pack up to flee.

For producer George A. Hirliman, The Gold Racket is one in a series of "G-Men" films (Yellow Cargo, Navy Spy and Bank Alarm, 1936-37) starring Conrad Nagel as detective Alan O'Connor. Hirliman's wife, Eleanor Hunt, stars as Bobbie Reynolds, resident love-interest. Director Louis J. Gasnier was a major figure in silent films before his switch into sound, his most well-known feature being Reefer Madness (1936).

Product Description:

As the title suggests, some smugglers harboring gold are the focus for this drama from 1937. FBI man Alan O'Connor travels to Mexico with his girlfriend, Bobbie, in an attempt to uncover the shadowy figures behind a recent spate of gold smuggling across the American border. But O'Connor gets the couple into deep trouble when Bobbie is kidnapped just as he is making some progress on cracking the gold racket, leading to a final showdown with the villains that leaves his beloved's life dangling by a thread.
