Synopsis by Hal Erickson
One of British mystery maven John Paddy Carstairs' earliest film efforts was his script for 1934's Boomerang. Lester Matthews stars as a blind author whose wife Nora Swinburne is being victimized by a blackmailer. Using his writing skills, Matthews plots out the perfect means of ending the blackmailer's activities once and for all. As the film's title indicates, somebody ends up hoisted with his or her own petard. Based on a play by David Evans.
