Another enjoyable B-movie with Margaret Lindsay
11 August 2012 | by See all my reviews

The same year (1940) they started their "Ellery Queen" series, Ralph Bellamy and Margaret Lindsay also co-starred in this Mexico-set comedy-mystery. She's a persistent reporter, of the "Torchy Blane" school, who suspects that he's the "Wildcat" - self-chosen nickname for a serial art thief. She sets out to trap him, but when she does, she's having second thoughts. Meanwhile, he plans to use her to escape - but what's his ultimate goal? The plot has one good surprise in the middle, so I won't say any more to avoid spoiling it. Though "Meet The Wildcat" is obviously little more than a quickly-made programmer, it's an enjoyable one at that, mainly because Margaret Lindsay has this spark and enthusiasm she gives even to a small project like this. Allen Jenkins also has some funny lines as a cab driver who assists Lindsay ("I've figured it out: the butler did it; only trouble is, there is no butler!"). But mainly the film is for Lindsay fans - like me. **1/2 out of 4.
