A Spanish-language version of Reliable Pictures' Midnight Phantom, this whodunit features Jose Luis Tortosa as an unbending police chief murdered with a poisoned dart. Suspicion centers on Police Lieutenant Alberto Burke (Juan Toreno), the boyfriend of the murdered man's daughter (Adriana Lamar), but as criminologist Professor Graham (Ramon Pereda) proves, the real culprit is someone entirely different and unsuspected. Filmed simultaneously with Midnight Phantom, El Crimen de Media Noche premiered in New York City February 1, 1936 under the title El Fantasma de Media Noche.
