Special Agent K-7 (1936)

Bland story of an FBI agent who solves the murder of a mobster. The only interest in this is seeing Duncan Renaldo years before becoming famous as TV’s Cisco Kid.

Super lawyer Lester Owens manages a hung jury in the murder trial of mobster Eddie Geller. After the verdict Lanny  “K-7” Landers returns to town. He wants to retire but is asked to find out the money behind Geller.

At Owens office a bribed juror gets his payoff. Later he’s gunned down. That night at Geller’s club reporter Ollie Odea is there with her fiancee Billy Westrop. Her former boyfriend Owens is with them. They’re joined by Lanny.

In his office Geller is visited by Silky Samuels. The boys aren’t happy that Geller’s not making a lot of dough. It isn’t Geller’s night. His club host Tony Black (Duncan Renaldo) is going to take off with singer Peppy. Geller accused him of taking advantage of the time he was in prison to get Peppy. Tony gets mad and Geller socks him. Then he has to deal with a drunk in the gaming room.

Smaltz lost a bundle at roulette and says it’s a crooked wheel. Geller calms him down. Into his office comes Billy. He owes two grand but since he hasn’t paid it’s now up to five. Smaltz is on his way to Geller’s office when he hears an argument and then a gun shot. Out comes Billy and Smaltz keeps going.

A bit later Lanny and Owens go to the office and discover the body. During the investigation Billy is arrested. Owens takes his case. Lanny uses science and some trickery to find out who really dun it. This one is not worth the time.

I'm a big fan of vintage books,movies,TV shows and music. I encourage everyone to patronize your local used book/record store and pick up some of the good stuff. My posts are capsule reviews of some favorites that you may want to investigate. The albums posted aren't really reviews but items from my collection that are still available. I try and point out highlights of each one and let the music speak for itself. Thanks to all for checking out the blog.
