Trivia

This film is one of over 200 titles in the list of independent feature films made available for television presentation by Advance Television Pictures announced in Motion Picture Herald 4 April 1942. At this time, television broadcasting was in its infancy, almost totally curtailed by the advent of World War II, and would not continue to develop until 1945-46. Because of poor documentation (feature films were often not identified by title in conventional sources) no record has yet been found of its initial television broadcast. It's earliest documented telecasts so far uncovered occurred in New York City Monday 2 August 1948 on WCBS (Channel 2), in Philadelphia Saturday 20 November 1948 on WFIL (Channel 6), and in Detroit Wednesday 20 April 1949 on WXYZ (Channel 7) See more »

Goofs

The first time Jimmy Parker recovers the radio with the hidden jewels from Miss Driscoll's apartment he has to unplug it from the wall. Near the end of the picture, when he takes it from Driscoll's new apartment, it doesn't have a cord and he just picks it up to take it away. See more »

A Repo-Man
26 February 2017 | by See all my reviews

I think that for today's audiences a little clarification is needed as far as terms used. James Dunn is described as 'skip tracer'. He is most definitely not someone who goes after dangerous criminals who break bail. Today what Dunn does would be better described as a Repo-Man. He just takes items bought on credit that buyers are late in paying for.

He's in some trouble at work because Dave O'Brien is the fairhaired boy of the boss because he repossesses more than the rest. And Dunn also is having woman trouble, his potential father-in-law who is a cop doesn't think he's the right sort for his daughter Frances Gifford.

But in a light and breezy paced comedy/drama Dunn gets himself an assignment to repossess a radio from Rita LeRoy who happened to stash some stolen jewels in it. She's the brains behind the mob and she's plenty smart and no one to mess with.

Dunn did this one for poverty row PRC Pictures and considering what a no frills outfit they were this one is pretty good.
