There's very little jazz in Jazz Girl, and not a whole lot of logic, either. Edith Roberts stars as lady detective Janet March, who dedicates herself to breaking up a rum-running gang. Along the way, she enlists the aid of her boyfriend, reporter Rodney Blake (Gaston Glass). Inevitably, Janet gets in way over her head, obliging Rodney to come to the rescue. Several crime-film "regulars" are in attendance in the supporting cast, ranging from apelike Dick Sutherland as a speakeasy chef to wizened Ernie Adams (usually cast as a ferret-faced stoolie) as a detective.
