Inventor Mallory (Boris Karloff) has invented a new security system - but unfortunately he tries to sell it to businessman Steven Ranger (Samuel S.Hinds), the man who has tricked him out of his previous invention (another security system) 15 years ago ... and sure enough, he tricks Mallory out of his new system as well. What he doesn't know though is that Mallory has the secret key to override the old system, and together with small-time crook Louie (Hobart Cavanaugh) he from now on breaks into shops secured by the system, not to steal anything but to play pranks - and as a calling card, he always leaves a note signed The Night Key behind.

Problem is, Kid (Alan Baxter), a bit-time gangster soon gets wind of Mallory's invention and soon enough kidnaps him, Louie, and Mallory's daughter (Jean Rogers) to make Mallory let him and his gang use the invention for his own evil ends - and soon enough, Kid's gang empties many a shop with Mallory's invention. But thanks to Mallory's ingenuity, Louie's self-sacrifice (as in so many of these movies, the likeable small-time crook gives his life in the end for the greater good), and police detective Jim Travis (Warren Hull), who was supposed to shadow Mallory's daughter but instead has fallen in love with her, Kid and gang are ultimately apprehended by the police - and Ranger finally promises Mallory to give him a fair deal on his new invention ...


Light-weight and totally pointless crime drama that has very little to go for it and that even the always brilliant Boris Karloff (in one of his benign old absent-minded scientist-roles) can't save. That's not to say that the film is actually bad, it's just dead boring ... which in a way is even worse.
