The usual stuff, nothing more

Not uninteresting, but not fantastic either. I did not know that William Clemens made films for Paramount Pictures, only Warner and RKO. OK, it's a routine mystery, private eye and investigation yarn. Preston Foster is very cool in this lead character, but as I said just before, you have already seen this a million times before. Jonathan Latimer wrote some stories for Paramount and a couple of John Farrow's films: THE BIG CLOCK, if I am not wrong. And of course he also wrote this one. An acceptable time waster, rare and worth watching.

We may expect some surprise that never come. That could have been cool too, for the audience, not the lead character.

Good standard little crime movie typically from the early forties.
