A very good film from Republic Studios. This is a short, but very entertaining film. I liked this one,and even though it is a low budget, you would never know it from the look of it. The cinematography is clear and the acting is quite good for this type of picture. Robert Lowery and Edward Brophy are quite a pair and very good together. Not bad for a "B" picture. Too bad that more of these unknown "little" films are not put out on DVD, as I would gladly buy them.I know that it is the type film that would never win an Academy Award, but still is very entertaining, if you like mysteries, or mysteries with a tinge of comedy from the 1940's !!
