Description by OLDIES.com:
Demoted to working in the "kindergarten" of the police department, tough cop Butch Saunders (Pat O'Brien) goes all soft at the center when a sweet blonde (Bette Davis) walks into the Bureau of Missing Persons looking for her missing husband. When it turns out her husband is both a murder victim and a bachelor - and that the blonde is suspect #1, Butch comes up with a scheme to crack the case. This nifty B picture moves with the speed of a follow-that-cab! taxi as it careens from drama to mystery to comedy (How to track carrier pigeons carrying ransom money? Wing after the birds in a plane!). And it's a chance to see Davis shine in a programmer the year before her breakthrough performance in Of Human Bondage.
A policeman helps a woman locate her husband when she comes to the Bureau of Missing Persons. He's been murdered but Bette Davis gets cleared in the process of finding him. An odd but pleasant comedy-drama.
