Officer 13 (1932)

Police motorcyclist Sandy Malone (Charles Delaney) is killed during a chase with a gangster (Robert Ellis). Because a judge's daughter (Lila Lee) was also in the car, and due to the mob's connections in the city, the gangster gets off...

The dead policeman's partner Tom Burke (Monte Blue) quits the force in disgust and sets out to get justice.

The film has an interesting (if unoriginal) story but is unfortunately a bit slow at times though the chase scenes are reasonably well done and the cast is great. An interesting thing about the film is that Sandy's son is played by Mickey Rooney is one of his earliest roles. It's not bad at all though could have been great.
