Shot in Miami
23 May 2009 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Police detective Lee J. Cobb (as Barton "Bob" Scott), who wants to retire in two years, fights off gangland efforts by crooked attorney Alan Napier (Ray Sheridan) and stocky partner-in-crime Edward Arnold (Oliver Tubbs), who want to turn Miami into a southeastern Las Vegas. After a fatal shooting, Mr. Cobb must protect sexy Patricia Medina (as Lila Hodges), who witnessed the killing of Cobb's police captain...

It you can stand to watch "Miami Exposé" until the end, you may want to know why Cobb's fiancée, a police widow, includes son Barry Connors (as Stevie Easton) on a cabin trip with a woman targeted for assassination. Couldn't safety-conscious Eleanore Tanin (as Ann Easton) find a sitter? Well, the shootout was fun… This was silent film actor, "Diamond Jim" star, and character actor Edward Arnold's final film.

*** Miami Exposé (9/56) Fred F. Sears ~ Lee J. Cobb, Patricia Medina, Edward Arnold
