William Powell starred as Philo Vance, reprising the role for Warner Brothers after he appeared as Vance in three films for Paramount.
Synopsis: Philo Vance's entry does not make it into the final of the Long Island Kennel Club's dog show, disappointing fellow competitor Archer Coe (Robert Barrat), who had hoped to savour a victory over Vance. Coe is found dead the next morning in his bedroom, locked from the inside. District Attorney Markham (Robert McWade), Police Sergeant Heath (Eugene Pallette) and everyone else assume it was suicide since he was shot through the head and was found holding a pistol. However, Vance is not convinced. He soon finds evidence that shows that Coe was murdered. Coroner Dr. Doremus (Etienne Girardot) determines the victim died of a stab wound.…..
