Sputters in several directions
15 October 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Missing Girls starts out as a tale about runaway females when Ann Doran takes off from her home and away from a domineering father and gets stranded in another town. Fortunately she meets Muriel Evans son of a Senator played by Wallis Clark and gets a job as a maid in his house.

Clark has a bill going to legalize gambling in his state which would put the local gambling czar Sidney Blackmer out of business. But Noel Madison and sidekick Dewey Robinson have another score to settle with Blackmer. They shoot Clark and make it look like Blackmer did the deed. And when Doran and Evans follow, they're taken prisoner and hid out at Vera Lewis's hideout for the fugitive.

Getting the lowdown on all of this is breezy reporter Roger Pryor and of course all is put right in the end.

Some really poor writing characterizes this. It was like I was seeing bits of several pictures with the same cast as the plot sputtered in several directions. A few familiar players are in this cast and essentially go through the motions.

I will say Vera Lewis was the best bandit mother this side of Margaret Wycherly in White Heat. But it ain't enough.
