Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Another of western star Tim McCoy's non-westerns for Columbia, Voice in the Night casts McCoy as telephone-company owner Tim Dale. The hero's operation is a small one, but it offers formidable competition for the rival firm owned by Tim's distant relative Robinson (Joseph Crehan). The plot thickens when Tim falls in love with Robinson's daughter Barbara (Billie Seward). In an exciting climax, Tim is obliged to stretch a telephone wire across a sickeningly deep canyon -- and if there's any doubt that he accomplishes this, it's only because the doubter has never seen the star in action. Voice in the Night may not technically be a western, but Tim McCoy remains tall in the saddle even while driving a roadster.
