Moto runs a school for sleuths. While attending a fight, one of the ring contestants is killed in action. Moto’s chief assistants are his two unwittingly funny pupils, Wellington (Maxie Rosenbloom), and Lee Chan, son of Charlie Chan (Keye Luke). Rosenbloom as a dimwit trying to learn to be a cop surprises with the quality of his buffonery. Dialog is okay and Keye Luke adds to the screwball comicalities.

Peter Lorre is beginning to look more at ease in the role of Moto [in the third of the series]. Bari is the newspaper gal heroine, but Regan also angles for the hero.
