New York lawyer as sleuth, debonair lawyer

Star of Midnight (1935)William Powell plays “a debonair lawyer suspected in the murder of a nosy newspaper columnist. Aided by classy, sassy, marriage-minded Rogers, he untangles the Manhattan maze of double-crosses, disguises and mis-directions without disarranging his dinner jacket – or bruising his gin.”
