Entertaining mystery with grown-up Bonita Granville...
A breezy mystery is given some nice performances from Bonita Granville and Morgan Conway as they attempt to solve crime in the big city.
I'm so used to seeing Bonita in some of her childhood roles, usually as a bratty teenager and later on as Nancy Drew, that it comes as a surprise to see how well she handled this adult role as an attorney.
The plot is sometimes light on logic and the ending using a lie detector test comes across as too pat a conclusion. It might have been better to furnish a stronger finish to the tale.
But it passes the time pleasantly enough, even if the guilty party becomes pretty obvious before the final scene.
