Storyline

Streetwise but kind-hearted Maisie Ravier has put her vaudeville life behind her, but not its associated outward good looks, flash and glamor. Trying to get to New York for a job, she instead gets stranded in Los Angeles literally with only the clothes on her back. Lt. Paul Scott of the LAPD bunco squad sees in Maisie what he believes would be assets to his team. Paul is eventually able to convince his boss, Captain Mead, that he is not interested in her on a romantic basis, and as such, Maisie is placed on the fast track program through the necessary training. During the training, Maisie learns that Paul is a hard-nosed, straight laced and outwardly unfeeling man, where she finds Officer Chip Dolan, who was formerly in bunco and is trying to get back into the squad, is more a kindred soul. If Maisie is able to make it through the training, she may get to work on the case of fortune teller who is swindling people out of vast sums of money, but not through the fortune readings in and ...

Wrapping it up with Maisie
4 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Final entry in the Maisie series is an inconsequential affair where our gal manages to find herself in a peck of trouble when she joins the police force.

As always the main reason to watch these films is the bright and bubbly Ann Sothern and as usual she's far better than the material handed her. The plot is a standard issue flimflam about phony spiritualists bilking unsuspecting dupes out of their dollars. You can see the ending coming from a mile away but the supporting cast contains several excellent actors including Leon Ames and Gloria Holden. Ann's leading men in these are usually competent but not terribly charismatic actors and Barry Nelson is no exception. He gets the job done although he and Ann share little chemistry.

Not a terrible way to end Maisie's journey but hardly the best place to see her. None are award winners but the original Maisie, Swing Shift Maisie and Maisie Was a Lady are the serial's best.
