For the ninth time, Warner Baxter plays Dr. Robert Ordway, better known to movie (and radio) fans as "The Crime Doctor". Ordway is in Paris, mingling with the upper crust of the art world. A murder is committed and a valuable painting is stolen; the principal suspects are the victim's son (Roger Dann), the father (Steven Geray) of the heroine (Micheline Cheirel), and an attorney (Marcel Journet). Ordway's search for the missing masterpiece takes him all over the European continent, while the solution to the murder takes him back to Paris. Crime Doctor's Gamble was directed by William Castle, long before he'd established himself as the king of "gimmick" horror films.
