Waterfront covered again
26 October 2014 | by See all my reviews

Secret Of Deep Harbor finds Barry Kelley doing quite well in Southern California while his colleagues are barely getting by. There's a good reason for that, he's got a nice sideline smuggling gangsters across the Mexican border.

But one night Grant Richards who is in charge of the smuggling kills one of the gangsters. It's an ordered hit, the man was stealing from the syndicate. But with Kelley on board now a witness to a murder that sets in motion the whole plot of this film.

Really though I would think that Richards would not be wanting witnesses and that would be easy to arrange by killing him after he's in Mexico. But then we wouldn't have a story.

Which is that investigative reporter Ron Foster is on the waterfront looking for confirmation about gangster smuggling and he finds it after helping Merry Anders home with her drunken father Kelley. I don't need to draw you a blueprint to figure out the rest.

This is a remake of the famous Claudette Colbert classic I Cover The Waterfront and the original was so much better. This one was like a stock company from Peoria production of the original.

Watch the one with Colbert.
