Storyline

Gloria Hall, an irresponsible heiress, is in Reno for her second divorce, and falls for Tony Lamarr, a fortune-hunting gambler and casino owner. J. B. Del Monte,her father in New York City, sends his public-relations man, Bill Carter, to buy off the gambler if Carter is not successful in convincing Glaoria that Lamarr is interested only in her money. When Bill is attacked at the Reno airport, Del Monte arranges, sight-unseen, for a bodyguard to go to Reno to look after Carter...and his $100,000. The bodyguard turns out to be Nora Ballard, an attractive girl and a Judo expert. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

A Republic comedy thriller

Well, I was not so surprised with this one. Republic Studios were used to make those sort of mixed up of thriller, westerns, comedies...

I would say it was their trade mark; for instance features with cars and phones...Such as Roy Rogers B westerns...

Back to AFFAIR IN RENO, we can see a normal guy - John Lund - who arrives in the Biggest Little City in the world - Reno - with one hundred grands in his coat. A little bullion in bank notes given by a wealthy man to a casino owner so that he marries his daughter...

And our hero discovers that he has a bodyguard, designed by the rich guy to protect him against people with bad purposes, a bodyguard in petticoat. Nothing less...

You can guess the following. I will tell no more about it.

A good time waster. And a RG Springsteen film is always worth for anyone who loves B movies.
