Hollywood Mystery (1934; B&W; 54 MINUTES): Fists and bullets fly when a dangerous scheme hatched by cocky Dan Ryan, a fast-talking Hollywood PR man, runs afoul of the mob. In a desperate effort to jump-start production of Supreme Pictures' latest gangster film, The Racketeer, Ryan convinces director Sigfried Sonoff to cast an actual mobster in the lead role. He plans to fool Sonoff by hiring an unknown actor to pose as a real gangster. Ryan's job gets complicated when the actor mistakenly punches out true-life mob boss Joe Romano. When revenge-driven Romano takes the star and the leading lady hostage, the make-believe world of The Racketeer suddenly becomes all too real.
