Hollywood 1961. Famous movie star Leroy Dane's fan club secretary has been brutally murdered. In her possession are old newspaper clippings regarding a missing heiress. Tom Alder, who specializes in finding missing heirs, investigates. Did the secretary know something about the mystery of the heiress, who was last seen at sixteen at a malt shop near school? When Tom goes to check up on Leroy Dane at a restaurant, Tom sees his ex-fiancée Linda for the first time in many years. Linda's friend Nikki is also at the restaurant. With the help of Tom's friends - a colonel in Washington D.C. who has access to military records and a detective in New York who has people doing research and running down clues - Tom begins to unravel a complicated story that involves Linda, Nikki, Leroy Dane, and his own past.

Quotes

Tom Alder: [Looking at a photo] When was this last picture taken?
Mrs. Eleanor Delaney: At Christmastime. Just before... before she left.
Tom Alder: [Flips back to a previous page in photo album] When was this one taken?
Mrs. Eleanor Delaney: Several months before, around Easter in 1947. It's the best picture we've ever had of her. It's her father's favorite.
Tom Alder: Is that why he gave it to the newspapers and the police?
Mrs. Eleanor Delaney: Well it was an excellent likeness of her.
Tom Alder: [Flips again to the last picture in the album] It's not as good as this one.

A Nice Neat Job
26 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

A lawyer begins a search for a woman who went missing as a teen ten years before. He is also forced at gunpoint to take on a search for the missing brother of "the king of the confidence men." He interviews colorful characters, knocks on doors, has flashbacks to his own life, and it all comes together at the end.

The plot is intriguing. It is complicated enough to demand your full attention, but not so complicated to be hard to follow. The jazz score has been done many times before and since. It goes well with the movie, but it is inappropriately intrusive here and there.

All in all, a nice, neat job. My one complaint is that costar, Jeanne Crain, has little to do here. The costar should have been Dina Merril. I am not so much concerned about billing, I am just a devoted fan of Jeanne Crain
