  • Versatile character actor (and offscreen golf pro) John Gallaudet is afforded a leading role in the 1939 cheapie MURDER IS NEWS. When business magnate Edgar Drake (William McIntyre) decides to get even with his cheating wife Pauline (Doris Lloyd) and her attorney lover David Corning (John Hamilton), it's dollars to doughnuts that someone's going to wind up dead. Problem is, the victim is Drake himself. So who "done it": The wife, the lover, or Drake's own son, a popular orchestra leader? With the help of his "leg man" Brains McGillicudy (George McKay), Winchellesque radio commentator Jerry Tracy (Gallaudet) hopes to crack the case. The presence of Columbia contractees Gallaudet, McKay and Iris Meredith suggests that MURDER IS NEWS was originally a Columbia picture, sold to fly-by-night Warwick Films for a quick turnover.
