Old Fashioned Murder Mystery
25 September 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is an above average PRC mystery. Lyle Talbot is cast as a movie studio publicity man. Glenda Farrell is his brash, wise-cracking girlfriend. When a studio movie star goes missing Talbot is sent out to find her. What he finds instead is a murder case. There is nothing new here and it is the type of story that was popular a decade previous. Ralph Sanford plays the too stupid to be real detective in charge of the murder case. This film is not terrific, but it never gets boring as it often the problem with PRC films. It's really a tribute to old pros Talbot and Farrell, who manage to keep this baby entertaining despite a low budget and a so-so screenplay.
