Light hearted Boston Blackie caper with same old formula...
Once again Boston Blackie puts one over on the police who wrongly accuse him of a crime he never committed. He uses his wits and ingenuity to outwit them at every turn--each episode more incredible than the one before. But it's entertaining in a formula way, with CHESTER MORRIS obviously enjoying himself as Blackie and Inspector Farraday finally congratulating him on capturing the real criminal.
DOUGLAS FOWLEY as Nails gives his usual hard-bitten performance as the villain, enjoyable as always in whatever supporting role he assumes.
It's a low-budget entry, designed to fit the second half of a double bill, and moves at a brisk pace in little more than hour. Morris is surrounded by the usual Columbia cast of "Blackie" performers.
