Up for Murder. 1931. USA. Directed by Monta Bell. 68 min.

A naïve young newspaperman (Lew Ayres) becomes involved with an older woman (Genevieve Tobin) without realizing that she is the mistress of his publisher (Purnell Pratt). Monta Bell directed this remake of his own, apparently autobiographical silent film Man, Woman and Sin, now set in that world of gaudy, urban corruption that was a Junior Laemmle fixation.
