Fails to Rise Above its Pedigree
13 December 2011 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Two lonelyhearts swindlers target a respectable widow.

What can you say about a police roadblock that looks no more forbidding than a parking lot entrance or a tropical cooling fan that spins with all the speed of a clock's minute hand. Sure, not much is expected from a 60-minute Republic feature, especially when it's not a matinée western. And this tacky crime drama doesn't disappoint.

But at least the producers got a bang for their buck from a decent cast. Especially from the great Ann Doran (Nancy), one of those unsung, unglamorous players who carry the movies on their collective backs. Here, she gets the screen time her talents deserve and makes even the occasional plot pitfall believable.

Still, the story is filmed in unimaginative fashion, while the script shuffles players in and out in no apparent order. Okay there's little point in criticizing a cheap programmer like this. It's like complaining about a cheap used car when it won't go over 50 on the highway. Too bad the even the more penurious PRC didn't get the material first. That way we might have gotten at least a cut-rate noir.
