I've just recently watched the 1932 film Night World, featuring Boris Karloff as the owner of a nightclub. It's a great minor crime film, and I recommend it. I'm having trouble with the name of an actress. Her role does not seem to be listed on either the AFI or IMDb cast lists. She's blonde and as an actress I would guess she is maybe 28-30, but here playing a woman slightly older, maybe 35-40. In her first scene, maybe 5 to 10 minutes in, she is a patron in the nightclub, with a soft-spoken, mustached, middle-aged husband, and the husband is suspicious that she has been carrying on with another man in the nightclub when he's not there, and asks the manager, Karloff, about her with a "trap" question. She signals Karloff silently, and Karloff covers for her. Karloff calls her "Mrs. Bryce" or "Mrs. Price" when speaking to her husband. Later, she slips out to a Cadillac (the doorman addresses her as "Mrs. Price" or "Mrs. Brice" or perhaps "Mrs. Brand"), and embraces and sneaks away with her lover. She can be seen clearly at 4:46 of the excerpts posted on YouTube [note that she is *not* the woman in the picture immediately below, which is from a different scene], at this location:
