Eccentric detective Trayne (James Dunn) investigates the disappearance of one Walter Craig (Gus Glassmire), a millionair whose house is the abode for his family of eccentrics, a family that is rocked by the fight of Craig's second wife Helen (Edna Johnson) and his daughter Tina (Jan Wiley). But Trayne has hardly started his investigations when Craig returns - but he suffers from a complete loss of his mental facilities, has been somehow turned into a human vegetable. Now this could spell case closed, but Trayne decides to stay on and do some more snooping around - and he soon finds out that Craig's brain has been artificially paralyzed, and the only man with a device to do it is a certain doctor ... whose trail has gotten lost God knows where. A few murders and attempts on Trayne's life later he tracks down a man (Harry Depp) able to identify the missing Doctor's voice. But instead of just bringing the man in for cross examination, Trayne makes a recording of everyone staying at Craig's house, then leaves it on his night desk as bait - and what do you know, the baddies are a) stupid enough to fall for his trap, and b) turn out to be Craig's wife Helen and her secret lover (George Eldredge), who needed Craig alive - because otherwise his daughter would have inherited his fortune - but mentally challenged to take control of his wealth ...

Joan Woodbury can be seen as Trayne's sidekick turned love interest.

 

Pretty much four typical Monogram murder mystery: It's full of plotholes, the story only makes limited sense, and many of the plot devices strain the suspension of disbelief beyond breaking point, but somehow the muddled screenplay and the bland direction are also charming in a nostalgic sort of way, and at least James Dunn and Joan Woodbury make a likeable couple of leads.
