The problem with the main characters in Midnight Morals is that they have more midnight than morals in their lives. Rookie cop Charles Delaney falls in love with taxi dancer Alberta Vaughan, much to the consternation of Delaney's chief-detective father DeWitt Jennings. Dad's trepidations seem to be well-founded with Vaughan gets mixed up in a gangland murder. Flying in the face of the rules of evidence and police procedure, Delaney stands by the girl's side, and together they reveal the true identity of the killer. Top-billed Beryl Mercer, who previously played the mothers of Lew Ayres and Jimmy Cagney in All Quiet on the Western Front and Public Enemy respectively, has a good scene as a prison matron.
