"At a police school, instructor Fields teaches a group of rookie policemen how to frisk a suspect. Captain Duffy enters the classroom and gives the rookies a hypothetical problem. None of the rookies knows the answer, including Jimmy Murphy. However, his younger sister Sally, who is peeking in the window, does, as it is the same problem Duffy has used in class for five years. After class, Jimmy calls gangster Ed Boyd, telling him that he is ready to quit the police and join his gang. Sally brings the rookies, who all board at her mother's house, their lunch as Tommy Bradley receives a letter from his younger brother Billy, currently in military school, stating that he is arriving that day for a visit. Sally and Greenberg, another rookie, steal Duffy's patrol car to pick up Billy at the station. After dinner that night, Tommy, Sally and Billy decide to go for ice cream when Tommy spies a robbery in progress at Sherman Brothers Fur Company. When Tommy interrupts the burglars, who include Jimmy, he is shot and killed. Jimmy returns home that night, angrily announcing that he is quitting the police school, and becomes the manager of the Golden Parrot Club, which is run by Boyd. Actually, Jimmy is working undercover for Duffy, but the rookies think he has gone bad. Sally and Billy decide to solve Tommy's murder themselves. Sneaking into the Golden Parrot Club on Halloween, Sally entertains the customers while Billy inspects the basement, where he finds the stolen furs in the wine cellar. By the time the rookies inspect their claim, however, the furs have been removed. Later, Jimmy calls Duffy, telling him where the next robbery will be. Sue, Duffy's daughter and Jimmy's sweetheart, overhears and goes to the club to warn Jimmy. Boyd and his henchmen listen in on their conversation and realize that Jimmy is an undercover policeman who has fallen into their trap. Sally and Billy, just outside the club, hear the real robbery plan, but no one will believe them. When the robbers never arrive at Jimmy's stated location, Duffy realizes that the real robbery is at the Garrison Company, so he, Sally, Billy and the rookies go there, and become involved in a car chase with Boyd and his gang. Just as the gang is about to pull over and shoot it out with the police, Jimmy grabs the steering wheel, crashing the car. The gang is captured and Jimmy is congratulated by all on a job well done. At the train station, Billy bids fond farewell to Sally, promising to come back for Christmas. As he leaves, Sally sighs and says, 'Gee, I sure wish this was Christmas'"--AFI catalog, 1931-1940

"When druggist John Jones plans to give the opening address at the Neighborhood Druggists' Association convention held on the 4th of July at Crystal Lake, his family of three sons, two daughters, wife and mother, insists that they be allowed to come along and convinces him to buy a trailer for the outing. After various mishaps occur on the first day of travel, the Jones family stops for the night to set up camp. John instructs his skeptical sons, Jack and Roger, on the proper way to build a fire, but succeeds only in filling the trailer with smoke. His teen-aged daughter Bonnie climbs a tree to escape a playful bearcub, of whom she is terrified, and she is greatly relieved when a stranger, Tom Williams, pulls the cub away. Williams, who tells the family that he was left behind by his train, fixes the stove in the trailer and successfully intercedes when a deputy sheriff threatens to fine John for building a fire in a restricted area. At Crystal Lake, Williams courts Bonnie, and Jack falls for a vacationing girl named Mabel, who has a penchant for fast boats and peppy music, while John prepares his speech and his bookish adolescent daughter Lucy attempts to write a novel. After Jack and Mabel stave a rented motorboat, the owner, Mr. Sweeney, allows Jack to spade a large plot of land to pay for the repairs. Jack tricks Roger, an extremely entrepreneurly-minded adolescent, into digging the plot to find Indian arrowheads to sell. Roger, displeased, sneaks up on Jack kissing Mabel and takes their picture. When he threatens to show the photo to the fellows back home, Jack is forced to agree to Roger's price for the negative. Meanwhile, a Department of Justice official comes looking for Williams, really a fugitive from the Illinois State Penitentiary named Silky Walker. After Williams tricks the unsuspecting Bonnie into leaving with him in the family car, Roger finds a typed farewell note. John, with Jack and Roger, borrows Mr. Sweeney's car, which he learns too late has no brakes, and chases Williams and Bonnie. After Bonnie threatens to jump and John, unwittingly, does not let Williams get around him, Williams stops the car and concedes defeat. The family learns that the farewell note was from Lucy's romantic manuscript, and on the trip home, after John points out that they should have nothing more to do with strangers, he nevertheless stops to pick up a lone boy hitchhiking, whose large family, hiding behind bushes, then pile into the trailer"--AFI catalog, 1931-1940
