I did not know this little movie produced by Republic Studios. I don't know the director either. Not a crime movie but an entertaining mystery yarn indeed. Typically from the early 40's, well paced and little comedy too. Look for Peter Lorre in the Mr Hyde character.
Dennis O'Keefe is also the good surprise of this little movie.
It's always a good surprise to find this kind of forgotten film. The score is the same as the Republic serials, especially in the action sequences. In the car chase for instance. I did not expect so much from this feature.
It's available in the Forgotten Noir disc set.
Go for it.
