Virginia Mayo & Robert Hutton HELD Picture UP
21 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Always enjoyed most of the pictures that Virginia Mayo has performed in and also Robert Hutton. In this picture, Virginia Mayo plays (Linda Vickers),"The Girl From Jones Beach",'49, where she has trouble trying to be a good girl and at the same time likes being bad and having a ball drinking and gambling with Bruce Bennett(Marty Fain),"Mystery Street",'50, who is up to his neck in trouble and winds up getting shot with a gun. They seem to trace the bullet with old fashioned 1948 methods, nothing like CSI today. Robert Hutton,(Doc Vickers),"The Secret Door",'64 tries to help his sister, Linda get on the straight and narrow path while she gets herself in deeper and deeper problems. They use a Wire recorder to try and get evidence against the killer and everybody seems to all fall down a staircase together. If it was not for Virginia Mayo and Robert Hutton, this picture would be long FORGOTTEN!
