Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Behind the Evidence is a standard Columbia crime programmer, directed with verve by veteran Lambert Hillyer. Norman Foster plays a millionaire who takes a job as a reporter after he's wiped out in the Stock Market. Foster's managing editor Samuel S. Hinds considers the young upstart to be a pain in the neck. But all is forgiven-at least until next time-when Foster solves a series of puzzling robberies. Shortly after Behind the Evidence went into the theatres, Norman Foster eschewed acting to become an accomplished director (Trivia note: Foster was the husband of actress Sally Blane, the former husband of Claudette Colbert, and the brother-in-law of Loretta Young. Just thought you'd like to know).
