Storyline

Minerva Hatton is back in Nevada, where she grubstaked her fortune years ago. Her granddaughter Julie Westcott is visiting while getting a divorce. They are blackmailed by Julie's husband, Philip, who has two gambling checks Julie has given a gambling casino. Minerva, trying to buy them back, comes across Philip's murdered body. Believing Julie guilty, she substitutes her fingerprints and pleads guilty. When she learns that Julie is innocent of the killing, she does an about face, appearing in court as a sweet old lady instead of her usual rugged desert outfits, to play on the jury's sympathy. Freed, she still must find the killer to clear Julie, to whom the evidence points. After a little detectice work, she is convinced of the identity of the killer. She has herself sworn in as a temporary sheriff, jumps into her Model-T Ford and uses her marksmanship to nab the killer. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

A nice little Warner Brothers film from 1940--very enjoyable!!
17 January 2001 | by (Parkersburg, West Virginia) – See all my reviews

One of the many "B" movies done in the 1940's--very enjoyable and also very short in its length--less than an hour long!! May Robson and a group of familiar character actors (if you watch many of the old black and white films) are great in this film. All about Miss Robson taking the blame for a murder that she thought her granddaughter did and then finding out who the real murderer is. Like I said, very enjoyable and a treat to watch. Would be great to watch this with someone and you can "pass the popcorn"!! LOL
