On something of a "literary binge" in the early 1930s, low-budget Monogram Pictures acquired the screen rights for the well-known Gaborieu detective yarn File 113. Lew Cody stars as urbane Parisian detective Le Coq, who must contend with a bank robbery and blackmail scheme. Le Coq is anxious to get both cases over with in a hurry lest his love life with Mlle. Adoree (Mary Nolan) suffer from neglect. Departing from the Gaborieu original, the film ends with an exciting chase across the roofs of Gay Paree. Clara Kimball Young, who like Lew Cody had been a silent-screen favorite, does her best in an unsympathetic role.
