Garrett"; about a police detective who thinks he killed his partner by mistake, and he quits the force and becomes an alcoholic, but later he discovers that one of the gang members had actually committed the murder, and he sobers up and looks for revenge, and part of that is finding "The Magpie", a female criminal, and he gets his revenge on the real killer, played by William Powell, and he also convinces The Magpie to reform and marry him!) starring George Bancroft, Evelyn Brent, William Powell (as Dapper Frank Trent), Fred Kohler, and Francis McDonald. Note that most people think that this is one of the first film noirs, even though that term was not coined until many years after this movie was made! Also, this is a "lost" film which means that no surviving copies are thought to exist.
