Trivia

The failure of the original copyright holder to renew the film's copyright resulted in it falling into public domain, meaning that virtually anyone could duplicate and sell a VHS/DVD copy of the film. Therefore, many of the versions of this film available on the market are either severely (and usually badly) edited and/or of extremely poor quality, having been duped from second- or third-generation (or more) copies of the film.

A bit ragged, but still a good story
14 June 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

A little bit of a ragged look to this Pine-Thomas B film from Paramount is the reason it gets such a comparatively low rating. Otherwise Danger Street is a fine B mystery film with a bit of comedy thrown in the mix.

Robert Lowery and Jane Withers star as a pair of hotshot reporters who would like very much to save the magazine they've been working for that publisher Paul Harvey wants to sell because his backward policies have been bankrupting the place. The first thought is to get pictures of a most Garbo like heiress Elaine Riley who is planning to get married. They get the pictures including one of her fiancé caught most indiscreetly with another woman.

Fiancé Charles Quigley is also desperate to get that incriminating picture back and the editor of a rival magazine is killed for it. Now if they can solve the mystery Lowery and Withers can also solve all their financial problems and maybe get control of their magazine.

Part of their sleuthing calls for Lowery and Withers to insert themselves into Riley's household as servants. There they come under the supervision of Charles Coleman as the butler who has the best performance in the film. Quigley also gets himself bumped off and Lowery is looking good for it.

Pine-Thomas didn't take their usual care with this one, it looks more like a Monogram feature, but better. Still Lowery and Withers and the cast have nothing to be ashamed of with Danger Street.
