You afraid of me, Al?
Doesn't Earl ever get jealous?
He understands. You can put strings on good women or bad women. But you can't do anything about lazy ones.
You can beat 'em.
They stay about the same. You can't make 'em do the right thing, or the wrong thing. They're lazy. They do the *easy* thing.
[nestles close for a kiss, then promptly springs up from Al's lap when Earl's voice is heard in hallway. Brightly]
Saved by the bell!
That... is the story of my life.

I just seen Appointment With Danger for the first time and quite enjoyed it.
A postal inspector is murdered in Gary, Indiana and fellow inspector, Al Goddard is sent over there to investigate this. He tries to track down a nun who witnessed the murder, which he does. He then joins the gang responsible and makes out he is a "bent" postal inspector.
This movie is shot well in black and white and well on location too, especially the railway scenes.
The cast includes the excellent Alan Ladd (Shane) as Goddard, Phyllis Calvert, Paul Stewart and Jan Sterling.
For some reason, Appointment With Danger doesn't seem to have been released on video or DVD, so you will have to rely on it coming on telly and tape it, which I did.
Rating: 3 and a half stars out of 5.
