Very familiar territory
16 June 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This DVD is brought to us by Alpha Video. And, like the rest of their films, it has not been restored and is a bit rough. This, combined with the ordinariness of the movie make this a B-movie that is probably not for the average viewer.

The film is about a brazen newspaper man (Roger Pryor) who naturally loves to break rules. When a man is killed and the daughter of the newspaper appears to be guilty, naturally Pryor hides her and they work on solving the crime together. A completely incompetent police detective who Pryor has been helping by feeding him leads is sent to find her. Can they find out the real killer before the police find them? Aside from the unusual casting of Franklin Pangborn in an atypical role, this is very familiar territory--with the clever reporter and the dumb cops. There must have been dozens of movies like this and this is neither better nor worse than the others. If you love Bs, then give this one a look--otherwise it's not particularly inspired.
