The necklace
15 July 2012 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Monogram Pictures produced a string of B type films during the 1940s. Some of them, like "Shadow of Suspicion" featured players from the studio which dealt mainly in low budget movies with a limited distribution, unlike the other Hollywood biggies. There were some players who became stars after having had their debuts as unknowns at Monogram.

Peter Cockson worked in several features for the studio. He had all the qualities to carry a picture, as he does in this one. "Shadow of Suspicion" involves a two man team sent from New York to investigate a robbery at the company's Chicago branch. James Dale and his partner Everett Northrup have the task to uncover the mystery. James Dale falls for the cute Claire Winter, the secretary of the store, who is asked to transport a package for the devious manager of the jewelry branch.

Directed by William Beaudine, the film was a typical Monogram Pictures product. Tim Ryan, who appears as Northrup also collaborated on the screenplay. Peter Cockson is James Dale, the man who solves the case. Marjorie Weaver appears as Claire Winer.
