alibi breaker (1937)

aka Double Exposure.
"Can you take our picture?"
A journalist, Peter Bradfield (Basil Langton) is fired for not getting the interview he promised with top businessman Hector Rodman (Julien Mitchell). He subsequently gets a job selling photographic equipment, and unwittingly captures some stills of two gentlemen talking. Unknown to him these gentlemen (the businessmen's lawyer and his secretary) are embezzling money from Rodman and are planning to fit up George (George Astly), his workshy fop of a son as the fall guy.
Cheap but cheerful film, mainly due to Langton who plays a flippant gadabout town that populated these sorts of film.
