The title character in this Columbia quickie is an elusive jewel thief who doesn't like to be photographed. Erstwhile journalist Roger Pryor didn't know that when he snapped a photo of the thief as he sped away from the scene of his latest heist. Thing of it is, Pryor's picture isn't all that clear-but the thief, who isn't above murder, is unaware of this. Pryor's toothsome leading lady in Case of the Missing Man is Joan Perry, later the wife of Columbia chieftain Harry Cohn. Chucklesome comic relief is provided by the reliable Tom Dugan as a street photographer.
