Seven guests, a newly hired personal secretary and two staff are gathered on an isolated island by an absent host and someone begins killing them off one by one. They work together to determine who the killer is. Could it be one of them?
An adventuresome young man goes off to find himself and loses his socialite fiancée in the process. But when he returns 10 years later, she will stop at nothing to get him back, even though she is already married.
When his friend Tom Hadley is picked out of a lineup as one of the men who robbed furs from a warehouse, rookie cop Clem Maitland uses his police dog, Ace, to refute the eyewitness. Clem found a portion of ripped overalls at the scene, and Ace's keen sense of smell would have identified Hadley, he argued. But Police Commissioner Hugh Thomas, who doesn't believe in the usefulness of dogs in the police force, is not convinced, and Hadley is arrested. The next day, the same gang robs a payroll in broad daylight and kills the gateman after decoying Ace and Clem, who was assigned to protect the payroll. Despite being suspended, Clem tracks a glove left at the scene to one of the gang members, and takes his girl, Gerry Lane, and Ace to investigate the roadhouse being used as a front, unaware that he was spotted by the gang members, who lay in wait for them.Written by

She is and I'd say this is a movie primarily for lovers of dogs. I've had shepherds for many years and often had people on the street call the Ace the Wonder Dog. So here he is.
Ace is the pet of the title character. Tim Holt plays the honest young police officer who knows his dog can help at his job. Virginia Weidler is a neighbor. I always enjoy her. Here she has a fluffy little female fog Ace kind of likes.
There are lots of bad guys here. A bad gal or two, as well. The plot is very far from original. It's a pastiche of clichés.
But Ace does his job. I won't say how he fares as a crime fighter. But he certainly saves the movie
