Post Office G-Man and female assistant spoil mail robbers
29 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was made in 1936, so it is of course very dated. However, I found it to be funny and it had enough action to keep me interested. I like that fact that it's about a little known federal law enforcement agency that doesn't get enough credit (The U.S. Postal Inspection Service). They were around long before the FBI, IRS agents and Secret Service and carried guns back when the FBI could not. It's worth checking out. I don't know any of the actors in this film. I think the lead male plays it mostly for laughs and the lead female is pretty enough and helps him carry it off. I'm pretty sure the L.A. Post Office depicted in the film is the actual Terminal Annex post office in L.A. right next to Grand Central Station and a short walk from Olvera Street.
