Buster Crabbe plays one of his more offbeat roles in Mayfair's Badge of Honor. Crabbe is cast as Bob Gordon, a spoiled society boy who finds himself in a small town, rife with political corruption. Hoping to bring the crooks to justice, Bob poses as a hotshot reporter, getting away with all sorts of outrages by explaining "Well, a newspaperman can do a little bit of everything." He manages to thwart the villains and win the heroine (Ruth Hall), all in a tight 62 minutes. Long believed lost, Badge of Honor was rediscovered in South America in the 1980s: currently available prints are in English with Spanish subtitles.
