Storyline

Reporter Sue Walker has too much inside information on the local gambling rackets to suit her sweetheart, Detective Lieutenant Jerry Brown, chief of the police Homicide Squad. When the call comes in that there has been a killing at Lefty Ross' place, a notorious gambling joint, Jerry is peeved when Sue beats him there. He discovers that gambler Jimmy Clark was killed as he answered a telephone call, and his body is riddled with bullets but Jerry can't find any weapon. Sue is amazed to see Gloria Cunningham there. Gloria's father is one of the town's leading reformers and she is engaged to District Attorney Richard Sutton. Ross decides to give Sutton all the information he needs and makes an appointment to go to Sutton's home. Once there, Ross is called to the telephone before he can give any information, and is killed in the same mysterious manner as Jimmy Clark. The only people aware of the appointment were Sutton's secretary, Tyler, Gloria and her reformer father, and Sue Walker, ... Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Grace Bradley was smoking hot!
28 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

OK, I'm reviewing this film for one reason only...I really liked the leading lady. She was stunning, truly drop dead beautiful. Amazingly, she is almost a dead ringer for Fay Wray! I'm a huge Fay Wray fan so I noticed this right away. The movie is really average at best, the only real reason I kept watching was to see more of lovely Grace. There wasn't much of a plot and the rest of the cast were pretty lame. The strange thing about some of these old movies is the simple fact that had they added a couple of good shootouts or brawls, they would have managed to hold one's attention much better. I recall some movies much worse than this one that stick in my memory because they offered a couple of nice action sequences. Maybe the budget wouldn't allow? Anyhow, this one is worthwhile if you want to see a remarkable beauty. "What a Gal!" ...indeed!
