A group of vaudevillians struggling to compete with talkies hits the road hoping for a comeback. Frustrated to be left behind, all of their kids put on a show themselves to raise money for the families and to prove they've got talent, too.
A photographer is choked to death just outside of where a college dance is being held. The body is discovered by Lee Watson (Warren Mills), but promptly disappears, as it is being whisked from one point to another on the campus by a night watchman, who is an ex-convict. However, he is not the killer and Freddie TRimball (Freddie Stewart), Betty Rogers (Noel Neill), Dodie Rogers (June Preisser) and Lee set out to find the culprit, who managed to put a big damper on the Big Dance.Written by

Copies of Campus Sleuth survive, and are in collectors' hands in truncated form, as well as the UCLA archives; I've not seen THAT copy. The mystery is whether an uncut copy still exists, containing the hayride musical l number featuring Mildred Jorman--Little Miss Cornshucks, It has been cut out of what existing prints I've seen.
This is the only footage known to exist of this colorful and talented blues/vaudeville performer of the 40s and 50s, and a subject I've been writing about and researching. Should a complete copy be available anywhere, I'm very interested in learning about that. this is not a masterpiece for the ages, but anybody's claim, but it contains a valuable performance that needs to survive-and also to be seen..
