Alan Baxter, usually seen as a neurotic villain in A pictures, gets to play the good guy in Monogram's Borrowed Hero. Baxter stars as a crusading DA who suspects that a "respectable" civic reform organization isn't all it appears to be. With the help of sob-sister Florence Rice, Baxter is able to scrape off the above-suspicion veneer of the organization and reveal the corruption beneath. Neil Hamilton, who later played the upright Commissioner Gordon on TV's Batman, is the high-profile criminal behind the reform racket. One of the screenwriters of Borrowed Hero was future best-selling novelist Sidney Sheldon.
