No Women, but Still Good
21 March 2014 | by dougdoepkeSee all my reviews

Except for the absence of Edie and Mother, this entry has all the superb elements of the series— succinct script, noirish atmosphere, good action, and thoughtful ending. Pete's hired to find out whether a famed jockey's girl friend died accidentally or not. Catch that grabber opening, a series earmark, and the great staging of the showdown. I wonder where they found that rickety Tower of Babel to do acrobatics on. Then too, I never fail to be impressed by the imagination shown in the series production, thanks mainly, I'm sure, to innovative producer Edwards. Anyway, good to see favorite 1930's delinquent Frankie Darro, as the jockey, picking up a payday. Too bad he didn't have the adult career his talent merited. All in all, it's another installment of a series that probably as much as any broke the blander styles of the 1950's.
