Non horror title in Universal's SHOCK! television package
8 May 2011 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

1937's "Reported Missing" was one of the few non genre entries in the popular SHOCK! package of classic horror films issued to television in the late 50s. After the opening credits roll to the familiar cues from 1935's "WereWolf of London," any connection to the genre is swiftly forgotten. William Gargan, who remained busy at Universal for the next decade ("The Crime of Doctor Hallet," "The House of Fear," "Sealed Lips," "Destination Unknown"), stars as pilot Steve Browning, whose new invention, a 'drift indicator,' helps planes avoid mishaps in inclement weather. The latest flight using the device is reported missing, and a search party fails to turn up any evidence, until Browning himself discovers that the plane crashed into a mountain, headed in the opposite direction from its destination. An FBI investigation also reveals that all money and valuables were missing. When a Denver flight crashes in identical fashion, with a huge amount of cash stolen, Browning connects the dots to prove deliberate robbery as the common motive rather than pilot malfeasance. The culprit's identity isn't hard to spot, but the method is not revealed until the thrilling climax in the air, making this one of the more watchable non horror SHOCK! titles, which never aired on Pittsburgh's CHILLER THEATER. Lovely Jean Rogers, fresh from the "Flash Gordon" serial, and playing Boris Karloff's daughter in "Night Key," provides the worthy subject of a romantic triangle, while Hobart Cavanaugh and Joe Sawyer provide some light comedy relief, more tolerable than many similar Universals of the era. Brief appearances from well known players like Eddie (Rochester) Anderson, Charles Trowbridge, Jack Carson, and Milburn Stone.
