Movie Info

Weldon Heyburn, a Clark Gable look-alike whom Monogram Pictures was grooming for stardom, heads the cast of The 13th Man. Heyburn is cast as Winchellesque radio personality Swifty Taylor, who begins his own investigation when the District Attorney is murdered with a poisoned dart. Swifty quickly determines that the killer would have to have a thorough knowledge of Malayan tribal rites, but before all the evidence can be put together, his own assistant (Milburn Stone) is murdered in the same fashion. Our hero nonetheless manages to nail the culprit and win the heroine (Inez Courtney) before the "End" title looms into view. The most confusing aspect of the film is its title, which seems to be a pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey affair.more
