Improbably Scripted Second Feature
7 July 2019 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Eddie Byrne is about to retire as a police superintendent, but a clue points to finally nailing crime boss John Chandos before he does. Chandos tries to bribe him, but to no avail. So a plan is worked out to frame Byrne's daughter, Jill Adams in a robbery that has a man shot.

I found the story a bit contrived, and Miss Adams' situation in reality much easier than the movie seemed to insist on. Perhaps that's a matter of not believing in the incorruptibility of policemen and the lack of a 'blue wall' that the script supposes. The production winds up looking hurried and cheap, with a street sequence as Miss Adams walks past newspaper headlines fuzzy and poorly matched to the rest of the movie. Perhaps it was a stolen shot.
