Suspense in the Times Square of old
17 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Entertaining little suspenser starring Macdonald Carey as Dr. Broadway.

After agreeing to do a favor for Eduardo Cianelli who is done in, Carey must unravel his murder while coming to the aid of his Ginger Rogers lookalike secretary played by Jean Phillips. J. Carroll Naish aims to toss her from a high window unless Carey comes up with Cianelli's $100,000. Mix in a crew of Runyanesque helpers, a police lieutenant, a judge, a phony daughter and you have a snappy 68 minute helping of suspense in a light vein.

Not noir, although sometimes loosely listed as such, since our hero never loses his cheerfulness, it nevertheless has a spareness, dark photography in places, and a story line that, with more consistent seriousness and toughness, could go into noir. So let's call it pre-noir, especially since Anthony Mann directed it, and leave it at that. Whatever it is, it's enjoyable. It never drags and it's not pretentious.
