Early Ginger

From the original Monogram Pictures in 1932, we present Ginger Rogers starring in a mystery film entitled "The Thirteenth Guest."  In this one, a young woman visits her childhood home, which had been shuttered 13 years after her dad passed away at the dinner table while they waited for a thirteenth guest.  While reminiscing, she hears a noise.  The frightened female starts to explore.  She screams.  A shot is fired. On arrival, the police discover the body of a young woman sitting at the dinner table, stiff as a board.

Joining Ginger in the cast are Lyle Talbot, J. Farrell MacDonald, Paul Hurst, Erville Alderson, Ethel Wales, James Eagles, Craufurd Kent, Eddie Phillips, Frances Rich, and Phillips Smalley.

With screenplay by Frances Hyland, based on Armitage Trail's crime novel, this picture was produced by M. H. Hoffman and directed by Albert Ray.
