Defenders of the Law (1931): East coast mob boss Joe Velet flies to Los Angeles, scheming to cut in on local gangland operations. Standing in his way is an old army buddy who took the high road after leaving the service - Police Captain Bill Houston. Velet also underestimates the opposition from the West Coast syndicate. He and his thugs are soon besieged by both cops and crooks, all determined to stop him. In desperation, Velet kidnaps the daughter of the police commissioner. Hoping to bargain his way to safety, the gangster instead triggers a deadly firestorm.Mae Busch, who appears here as an undercover policewoman, was already well known for playing Oliver Hardy's shrewish wife in several films, and had a well-deserved reputation for her skill in "crockery throwing."
