Borrowed Hero, a 1941 film, is a murder mystery set in Hollywood during World War II. It stars Alan Baxter as Bill Crane, a successful public relations agent, who is sought out by a Hollywood studio to help promote their latest production. However, when the film's leading man, Steve Bennett, is murdered, Bill Crane finds himself in the midst of a complex investigation.

Florence Rice plays Joan Marshall, the daughter of one of Crane's friends, who also happens to be the main suspect in the murder investigation. Despite her father being accused of the murder, Joan is adamant that he is innocent, and together with Crane, she sets out to uncover the real killer.

Constance Worth plays the glamorous actress who was romantically involved with the victim, and who is also a suspect in the murder investigation. As the investigation progresses, Crane and Joan find themselves drawn into a web of secrets and lies, which threatens to derail the entire case.

The film boasts a star-studded cast, and the performances are outstanding. Baxter is excellent as the sharp-witted and insightful Bill Crane, while Rice delivers a truly compelling performance as the courageous and determined Joan Marshall. The chemistry between the two is palpable, and their banter adds a touch of humor to the otherwise dark and brooding story.

The film is set against the backdrop of World War II, and the war is used as a powerful metaphor for the deceit and corruption that lies at the heart of Hollywood. The film explores the idea that Hollywood is a world of illusions, where nothing is as it seems, and everyone is playing a part.

As the investigation unfolds, the audience is presented with a host of suspects, each with their own motive for wanting Steve Bennett dead. The twists and turns in the plot keep the audience guessing until the very end, and the resolution of the murder mystery is both surprising and satisfying.

Borrowed Hero is a gripping and atmospheric film, with a strong cast, an intriguing plot, and a fascinating exploration of the darker side of Hollywood. It is a must-see for fans of murder mysteries and classic films.
