The Price of a Song (1935)

Intriguing crime drama in which Gullan plays a hard-up bookmaker who persuades his daughter to marry a songwriter (Maturin) in the hopes that the new son-in-law can help him out of a financial bind. Gullan plots to murder Maturin when his daughter opts for divorce, so that he will still have access to the money. Unfortunately, Gullan's plan fails once he talks about a tune the songwriter failed to publish before his death.
