What's a little robbery after a double header like this!
7 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

***SPOILERS*** With the music on the hi-fi stereo blasting away an unseen stranger is allowed into the Ben Harlow penthouse apartment who without saying a word blast Harlow and his one night stand for the night Martha Brent to kingdom come with Martha still holding on to her mink stole as she leaves this world for good. Now with a double murder on its hands the NYPD contacts everyone who knew both Harlow and Martha in order to get a cue to who murdered them. It soon becomes known that Harlow was not only fooling around with Martha but dozens of other women that made the suspect pool, husbands and boyfriends, big enough to fill a Manhattan telephone directory. But it's this just released from a mental institution June Waldon who comes out of nowhere claiming that she in fact did both Harlow & Martha in.

It's obvious that June knows a lot more about this murder case then she could have read in the papers and watched on TV about it. But she didn't have either the strength or know how in handling the massive .45 automatic to get the job done. She was obviously covering up for the person who really did in both Harlow & Martha but why? The truth soon come out when Martha's estrange husband Andy Brent who shows up to make a positive identification, through her bear feet, of Martha at the city morgue. Even though cleared of any involvement of the murders he seemed to have a deep guilt complex that made Det. Adam Flint look deeper into his reason for acting so strangely and sure enough he in the end found it!

***SPOILERS*** A man who lost everything including his wife to the womanizing Ben Harlow just flipped out when he felt he couldn't handle his life of failure anymore. Brant's elaborate plan to do in both his wife and Harlow in almost succeeded until June showed up and without him noticing her and saw him commit the crime. Not being able to face disgrace and a possible walk to the Sing Sing electric chair Brant planned to do himself in in as well. It was a sudden change of heart, with Det. Flint hanging on for life at a east side construction site, that turned this coward into hero as well as finally made him face, not run from, the the crime that he committed.
