Bureau of Missing Persons (Warner Bros 1933, Pat O’Brien, Bette Davis)



Whitney Houston & Bobbi Kristina

A tough cop gets more action than he expected when transferred to the Bureau of Missing Persons, including tangling with spitfire Bette Davis.

A New York movie house showing Bureau of Missing Persons took advantage of the picture by offering a $10,000 reward in its lobby for information pertaining to a judge’s disappearance.
