Honest cop Bob Conlon (Bruce Bennett) is in love with Helen Regan (Rochelle Hudson),who begs off from a lasting committment because of the injuries incurred by her policeman father (Oscar O'Shea). Helen inaugurates a "safer" romance with Johnny Davis (Roger Pryor), who unbeknownst to her is the leader of a criminal gang. Bob manages to get the goods on Johnny, but his problems are far from over: Helen and her dad are kidnapped by vengeful ex-convict Blake Standish (Sidney Blackmer). Tom Kennedy goes through his usual dumb-cop paces, providing a few islands of comedy relief in this round-robin actioner. Officer and the Lady was the first feature-length directorial effort by Sam White, whose brother Jules was then in charge of Columbia's 2-reel comedy unit.
