No review available.

Copyrighted October 24, 1932.
The Twelfth film in the series.
In the scene around 6m 44s into the film Thelma Todd comes very close to losing her head when the revolving door she is in almost decapitates her. You can see she braces herself for impact before correcting herself in time. screenshot.
Credit where it's due for James C. Morton: this was not a stunt double!
The credits mis-spell Bud Jamison's surname as JAMEISON.
