The Wedding will be Delayed . . . By Murder

When you watch a murder mystery with many suspects and few clues, can you predict who the killer is long before he is unmasked? In this murder mystery there are many suspects, but only one killer, and that killer is very, very smooth.

Swifty Taylor is the tall, deep-voiced newspaper reporter for the Globe Times newspaper, and he is the voice of crime and criminals around the city. The Globe Times also owns the most powerful radio station in town, and every day Swifty goes up to the top floor of the newspaper building to announce the latest news on the powerful radio station.

Tomorrow is election day and the District Attorney wants to be re-elected so that he can put one more gangster in prison. Over his past term he has convicted twelve gangsters who have been terrorizing the city, but there is one more mobster . . . . The big fellow . . . . The mastermind behind most of the crime and corruption in the city . . . . The 13th man. But tonight the D.A. will watch the boxing match, along with all of the suspects and much of the city . . . . And the D.A. will be down for the count before the fight ends. He will be mysteriously murdered by the 13th man in an arena full of witnesses and suspects.

Newspaper reporter Swifty Taylor is the face and voice of the news, but young Jimmy Moran, played by Milburn Stone, is the newspaper reporter who will put all the pieces together and discover who the killer is. Jimmy is getting married in the evening to the boss’ secretary, but today he has a hot tip about the man who killed the District Attorney. Unfortunately, the 13th man is watching Jimmy as he discovers the incriminating evidence, and Jimmy will not be on time for his wedding this evening.

When you watch a murder mystery with many suspects and few clues, can you guess who the killer really is? My very early guess was spot on, and you will probably also guess the identity of the 13th man also . . . . . Or maybe not. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
