charming light-hearted mystery, with Bob Livingston as small-town sheriff
No great profundity here, just a charming little comedy-mystery-romance starring Bob Livingston, an actor of great charisma and wit, as a small-town sheriff pitted against/teamed with visiting big-city detective Stephanie Bachelor. Ms. Bachelor was in a number of films between 1943 and 1948, then seems to have dropped from the big screen. She too is an actor with charisma and charm, and the romantic disagreements between her and Livingston are delightful. Add to this a slate of colorful and quirky supporting characters, and a mystery that could have held its own in a serious mystery film, and you've got an hour of solid b-movie entertainment that is typical of what Republic Pictures did so well.
