Edgar G. Ulmer
In New York City, dapper Dick Haymes (as Benny), gruff Lionel Stander (as Monk), and crafty Roland Young (as Matthew) are a trio of con men who hide from the police by assuming the identity of three reverends attending to a needy mission. While hiding out, the three con men of the cloth begin to question their criminal ways. Our leading man Mr. Haymes cozies up to attractive blonde illustrator Nina Foch (as Linda Kovacs) while Mr. Stander mulls over the family he left...
Freddie Bartholomew (as Rev. Wilbur) makes his last feature appearance, in a supporting role. Although still a young man, and acting able to follow a successful character actor career path, Mr. Bartholomew retired from the screen grind. Haymes' sole song "I Believe" is not the Frankie Laine song that came out a couple years later. The obvious plot potential in making Mr. Roland a fallen preacher is not realized. This would have made his part, and the story, stronger.
***** St. Benny the Dip (8/24/51) Edgar G. Ulmer ~ Dick Haymes, Lionel Stander, Nina Foch, Freddie Bartholomew
