threadbare Poverty Row crime drama with Nurse as police informant
26 September 2003 | by (south Texas USA) – See all my reviews

Although directed by cinema pioneer Karl Brown (the man who photographed Birth of a Nation and Intolerance), there's little evidence of his mastery in this quickly-shot crime programmer where Sally Blane plays a nurse whose brother has been made a patsy in a phony investment scheme and who volunteers to go undercover as private nurse to one of the crooks who framed her brother. It takes place in a few shabbily furnished rooms, there's more talk than action, and top-billed Lloyd Hughes, who is usually an ingratiating screen presence, is not in it enough. It was an E.B. Derr production for his Crescent organization, which made and distributed a number of Tom Keene "historical" and frontier films (not really b-westerns) the year before this, some written by John Neville, the author of this film. Derr released this through Monogram, which was likely starved for product after retreating from the merger that formed Republic Pictures and going independent again. I seek out and watch ANY poverty row 1930s film, so I'm used to this kind of thing and I found the film passable, but it's really not for the casual viewer, only the serious collector. If you want to watch an E.B. Derr production released through Monogram from the same period that is worthwhile, try FEMALE FUGITIVE starring Reed Hadley.
