Danger on the Air (1938)

One of the Universal Crime Club films.

The story of what happens at a radio station when a hated sponsor is killed by mysterious means.

Its a good if rambling film that seems to be taking its time in getting where it's going. It's not bad but even running a brief 70 minutes you kind of wish that they'd pick up their pace a bit.

That said the use of a gas a a murder weapon and some intriguing characters-there is one guy who can imitate everyone and when people are afraid to enter the building he does all the voices himself- make this memorable.

It may not be something to search out but it is something you'll want to watch when you do run across it. (then again has it for a couple of bucks so it's worth it)
