Bureau of Missing Persons ★★½ 1933

Comedy-drama about big-city bureau of missing persons, in which the hardened Stone is in charge. O'Brien plays a tough cop who is transferred to the bureau and Davis stars as the mystery woman with whom he gets involved. Although fast-paced and intriguing, the film is somewhat confusing and never stays in one direction for very long. 75m/B VHS . Bette Davis, Lewis Stone, Pat O'Brien, Glenda Farrell, Allen Jenkins, Ruth Donnelly, Hugh Herbert; D: Roy Del Ruth; W: Robert Presnell Sr.; C: Barney McGill; M: Bernhard Kaun.
