Who Killed the Chief of Police in a room full of Cops?

British actor Reginald Denny was killing time between scenes, and he noticed a young boy nearby flying a gasoline powered model airplane. Reginald Denny was fascinated, and offered to help the boy adjust the model to make it fly better, and the two watched as it crashed and was destroyed because of the changes that he made. Reginald Denny had served during World War One in the British Royal Flying Corps, and had a life-long interest in flying.

In 1935, the year that this movie was filmed, Reginald Denny opened the Reginald Denny Hobby Shop at 5751 Hollywood Boulevard, selling model airplanes, ships and H.O. scale railroads. His shop sold a model plane engine named ‘Dennymite’ for his model ‘Dennyplane’. When World War Two began in 1941, Denny and his partners won a military contract for radio-controlled drone airplanes that anti-aircraft gunners could practice shooting down. Northrop Corporation later purchased the plant making the drone radio-controlled airplanes.

In this cop-killer murder mystery he is a famous criminologist who often helps the police solve difficult crimes. He is giving a midnight demonstration of his crime-detecting abilities to a room full of policemen and policewomen when the Chief of Police suddenly slumps in his chair, very dead. The doors are locked and the famous criminologist tries to solve the mystery of the murdered Police Chief, who had more enemies in the room than friends. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
