Exposed (1947)

** (out of 4)

Yet another cheap and bland "B" picture from Republic. This time out smart alack P.I. Belinda Prentice (Adele Maria) is hired by a rich father to do some snooping on his son who recently moved out of his house. Soon the father is murdered and Belinda must try to work around the family to get clues as well as her inspector father (Robert Armstrong). If you must watch every murder-mystery that was released during this era then I'd recommend this to you but all others should certainly avoid as there's very little to recommend here. I would love to say that the screenplay was horrid and the entire investigation was just poorly written but I wouldn't say that in good faith. The film is so blandly directed that it's hard to really care about the investigation and it's not even fun trying to figure out who the killer was. The movie gets off to a rather silly start as our "hero" is held up only to use her brains to get out of it. The problem is that I didn't believe she was smart for a single second. To make matters worse is that her "catch" is that she has a smart and sassy mouth, which grows very tiresome very quickly. It doesn't help when you're suppose to be rooting for someone yet you can't stand her. To be fair, Maria is pretty good in the role as you can tell she's giving it her all but the screenplay simply makes her character unlikeable. It's always fun seeing Armstrong even if, again, the screenplay doesn't do much for him. The supporting cast includes Lorna Gray, Mark Roberts and cult favorite Bob Steele playing a gangster-like character named Chicago. EXPOSED runs an hour but you'll be running out of patience around the twenty-minute mark and sadly things never really pick up. This isn't a horrible movie by any standards but there's simply no life or energy and in the end there's really no point in watching it.
