Towards the end of the film, the action takes place at the "Jane Drake Theatre," where "Jane Drake" is appearing a play called "Bedtime Story," written by "Lucius Drake". These characters, the play and the theatre are all left over from Bedtime Story (1941), also produced by Columbia Pictures a few months earlier, starring Loretta Young and Fredric March in the Drake roles.

Boston Blackie movies are fun to watch. Even as a kid, I enjoyed them because of the action, coupled with intelligent stories and good acting. Chester Morris IS Boston Blackie, and in this one he has to track down an escaped prisoner... always leading from one situation to the next. Good stuff! An 8.
