Routine, but interesting
25 May 2002 | by (Tecumseh ok) – See all my reviews

This routine little murder mystery is not so much on plot, however, I always find the movies made on location in the Los Angeles area in the '40s and early '50s interesting-it's nice to see that there were actually areas that were not covered with glass and concrete, before the Eastern Carpetbaggers moved in and turned the area into what they had fled, i.e. the worst of Detroit, Chicago and NYC. Another reason to recommend this one is that it features the lovely Ms. Westcott, second only in B movie beauty to Marie Windsor. Otherwise this is a routine tale of a detective hunting thieves that have turned to murder.
