Breaking a Post Office rule leads to big trouble for Warren Douglas
25 May 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Post Office Investigator" (1949) is a very good 1-hour Republic noir. I concur with the one other review. IMDb voters have this one at 5.6, which is too low. This is a tightly plotted story laced with just the right blend of intrigue and humor for its type. It starts right off on a snappy foot, showing a stamp auction and how a valuable stamp is stolen and then mailed out. A double cross ensues and mail collector Warren Douglas inadvertently gets involved when he aids the story's femme fatale, Audrey Long. It's a good thing that he also does some romancing of Jeff Donnell. Leading the police types is character actor Thomas Browne Henry in one of his 203 roles. Richard Benedict plays a mute heavy. This one is very enjoyable.
