Kitty and Johnny return
28 September 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Jean Parker and Peter Cookson return to make another Monogram feature as secretary Kitty O'Day and her boyfriend Johnny an older and sillier edition of Nancy Drew and her boyfriend Ted. But as teens Bonita Granville and Frankie Thomas were a whole lot more entertaining and believable than these two. I'm trying to figure out how Parker ever held down a job as scatterbrained as she is.

She's losing this one because it's her boss who winds up dead. Parker works as a secretary for a hotel owner who gets himself killed. Problem is that every time she and Cookson decide to report the crime, the body disappears. She's driving homicide cop Tim Ryan to total distraction.

Not that Ryan's not busy because a few other murders happen along the way all connected to this one.

Sam Katzman over at Monogram was obviously looking for another movie series like Cisco Kid and the Bowery Boys. But two films and Kitty O'Day went to the dustbin of cinema history.
