Watch That First Step
30 December 2007 | by (Hamilton OHIO) – See all my reviews

I haven't seen this film in years, but there was a clip of it in the Republic Pictures story. Apparently, Stephanie Batchelor has a thing for older wealthy men and she commits the perfect crime by rigging up an elevator so that the door opens to an empty shaft. Saying goodnight to her boyfriend, she pushes the button to the door and gives him a nudge. Don't know how the movie turns out, but I would like to find a copy. I contacted her years ago when she lived in Las Vegas for an autograph. I had a shot of her from the Roy Rogers film, Springtime in the Sierras, where she plays a cold-hearted villainous who shoots an elderly game warden in the stomach. Her line is "This may hurt a little." In a Roy Rogers movie, yet. Man, that's cold.
