Held for Ransom

1938 Rated NR 57m

When candy tycoon Herbert Scott is kidnapped, the cops can't prove that their main suspect -- Scott's son, Larry (Grant Withers) -- is involved. In a last-ditch effort, they call in feisty FBI agent Betty Mason (Blanche Mehaffey) to solve the case. Mason takes the investigation in a different direction and she's all business, fending off the romantic overtures from her partner and keeping sharp for the film's climactic shoot-out.
