"When prominent New York businessman Frederick Keller is murdered, police arrest his former accountant, John Finney. Before Finney is sentenced, however, a mysterious man enters the courtroom and proclaims himself the murderer. District Attorney Cluett interviews the man, who gives his name as Joe Monday, which is an obvious alias. Joe refuses to divulge any personal information yet readily signs a confession. The press builds up the story of the anonymous murderer, and people begin writing to Joe in hopes that he is their long-lost brother, son or father. Joe's defense attorney, Steve Phillips, asks Joe to reveal his identity for the sake of those whose false hopes he is raising, but Joe maintains his silence, even when he is visited by Alice Stetson, who is searching for her brother Frank. Alice has not seen Frank since he left to fight in World War I, during which he was declared missing in France. At first she thinks that Joe is Frank and tests him by reciting poems they loved as children, but when he says that he served with Frank in the Army and saw him die, she becomes discouraged. Steve believes that this may be a clue to Joe's identity, however, and he and Alice travel to Washington, D.C. to look at the records of Frank's company. There is no 'Joe Monday' listed, so they decide to question the company's two surviving members. The first, James Sawyer, is blind and cannot identify Joe, and when they try to question Paul Gilli, they discover that he has gone to New York to testify in the trial. When the trial begins, Gilli testifies that Joe is Frank Stetson and that he spied for Germany during the war. Frank was court-martialled on the basis of evidence provided by Keller and sentenced to death. Joe still refuses to testify in his defense, and the jury tries to reach a verdict. As they are deliberating, the judge calls them into the courtroom and introduces a new witness, Otto Bruckner. Bruckner takes the stand and testifies that, during the war, he was a German spy posing as a French cafe owner named Henri Picot. Keller was also a spy, and when Frank found evidence of Keller's treachery, Keller framed him. Joe finally breaks down, embraces his beloved sister and agrees to testify. He describes how Keller betrayed him and how he escaped from the firing squad but could not return to his family because he had been branded a spy. After twenty years, he found Keller and tried to force him to tell the truth. Keller pulled a gun on him, and Joe was forced to shoot him in self-defense. Believing that all evidence confirming his story had been destroyed, Joe refused to say anything about himself in order not to hurt Alice and their aged mother. Joe is acquitted after his stirring testimony, and later, a crowd cheers as he is reunited with his mother"--AFI catalog, 1931-1940

"Newspaper reporter Joe Ryan and District Attorney Thomas Redwine make a deal whereby Joe will have access to jailed actress Judy Allen in exchange for help on a tough racketeering case. By promising that she and her chorus girl friends, who were picked up during a nightclub raid, will be freed from jail, Joe persuades Judy to use her acting skills to impersonate a fortune-teller in an undercover operation. With assistance from ventriloquist Kitty, Judy, becomes 'Haidee, ' a fortune-teller working out of a shop that is lined with hidden cameras and microphones. Shortly after opening for business, Buzzell, a phony private detective, shows up demanding 'protection' money. In the meantime, Joe's close friend, Phoebe Sawyer, a very wealthy widow, is talked into visiting 'Marvin, the Sightless Seer' by her maid. Unaware of the tricks that he is using to obtain information, the usually skeptical Phoebe is impressed by Marvin's apparent ability to 'see' her life. While Marvin and his cohorts, lawyer Ray Taylor and financier Lionel Whitmore, plot to send Phoebe to a remote island and steal her fortune, Joe sets himself up as a fortune-telling dupe. Under an assumed name, Joe buys phony mining stock from a crooked securities company, saying that Haidee had sent him. Later, with Buzzell as his witness, Joe accuses Haidee of fleecing him. Although Buzzell falls for the ruse, Jenner, his immediate boss, becomes suspicious and has his henchmen, Dummy and Slim, take Joe 'for a ride.' Joe is saved by the police, but Redwine, realizing that the [thugs'] lawyer, Ray Taylor, will demand a writ of habeas corpus, decides to incarcerate them temporarily in a mental asylum. In the meantime, Whitmore hires a forger to sign Phoebe's name to papers that give Taylor power of attorney over her assets. When Joe finally hears of Phoebe's sudden voyage, however, he tells her the truth about Marvin and asks her to join the investigation. Whitmore, believing that Phoebe has sailed, has Marvin murdered and orders Taylor to liquidate her bank accounts. While Dummy and Slim are released to trap Whitmore, Phoebe confronts Taylor, who is arrested by Redwine. Judy and Kitty are kidnapped by Whitmore and taken to Phoebe's, where they eventually are found and rescued by Joe and the police"--AFI catalog, 1931-1940
