An effective Republic yarn.

I just discovered it. A very well made story, surprising for this kind of B movie. A policeman's bride is implicated in a hit and run accident. Both her and the police officer - Scott Brady - have to face blackmailers. One bystander who witnessed the accident, and the garage owner to whom she went to repair her car. The owner tries to abuse her for his silence, about the accident to report to the police. She refuses. And, the owner, who has very serious problems with his wife, has a terrible quarrel with her and she kills him. The police force investigates about this strange death and, of course, the poor officer's wife, who had the accident, is suspected because the police found some traces of the hit and run accident on the very place where the garage owner found death, crashed by a car he was repairing. Killed by his own wife...

So the police officer and his fiancée will have to prove the young woman' innocence, while the owner's wife - or may I say widow - tries to blackmail her husband - dead husband - associates. Hoods with whom he made some outlaw activities.

So, it's a movie with some stories mixed one with another, stories of blackmailing within blackmailing. Interesting at the most.

I won't tell you longer about this film, but it's really worthwhile.
