This is about a fireman who investigates an arson ring. The lead is played appealingly by Robert Lowery. It's very well cast: Anne Gwynne is the schoolteacher he falls for. Edward Brophy is both initially amusing and then intense as an arsonist. Maude Eburne is fun as Gwynne's saucy granny. And the second female lead -- this is not funny; it's scary -- gets smacked in the face by two of the characters. (She is played by the petulantly pretty Marcia Mae Jones.) Unknown programmers like this tend to be disappointing. "Arson, Inc." is the reverse: One comes to it with low expectations and it packs quite a wallop.
