Notorious counterfeiter "100 Dollar Bill" Bailey has eluded police capture for fifteen years while passing off his signature C-notes. He brazenly passes himself off as Secret Service agent Charles Mitchell to McBride and McTavish and recruits police help in what they think will be a sting operation at the local racetrack to catch Bailey. Actually, Bailey/Mitchell uses the opportunity to exchange his phony bills for the real thing right under Steve's nose. Torchy, with the aid of a furloughed Gahagan and a German shepherd named Blitzen, is able to penetrate the counterfeiting ring. Written by

Brassy Glenda is the greatest
1 July 2004 | by (Chicago, IL) – See all my reviews

With the fifth of Glenda Farrell's seven Torchy Blaine films, the Warner Bros. series would begin to drift away from knotty whodunits to more cops-and-robbers action with which the series would remain, incl. the two non-Farrell Torchys made after hers. Too bad, because now, instead of two sweethearts partnering to solve a murder, Torchy and Barton MacLane's Detective Steve McBride relationship now becomes adversarial reporter vs cop. Ho hum. Still, it was fun while it lasted. The chief pleasure of the series remains; Glenda Farrell as the brassy, intuitive and unstoppable newshound, Torchy Blane - greatest of all 30s Hollywood B movie female reporters.
