User Reviews

A quick adventure and mystery yarn.

Typical product of Universal studios from this decade, 40's. It could have been made by George Waggner, Lew Landers or Christy Cabanne. This kind of flicks never ran beyond one hour. No boredom in them. Talkatives, action packed in the same time. Mixture of comedy, romance, crime, a little drama and adventure.

This story of a near married detective who has to protect diamonds is rather stereotype, nothing special. Except the climax, at the end, aboard the plane. But it's not AIR FORCE ONE !! I comment it before forgetting...But the purpose in seeing this kind of product is fighting boredom, and replunge into 40's atmosphere. The characters are not deeply described, of course. And it's always a pleasure to see Maria Montez. She has not the lead, but who cares?
