The sixth in the Torchy Blane series and the return of Glenda Farrell and Barton MacLane after one movie with different leads. This time around Torchy is after a group of clever counterfeiters running circles around boyfriend Steve and the police department. Tom Kennedy once again shines as the dimwitted but lovable Gahagan. George Guhl is funny as the desk sergeant. Farrell and MacLane are both fine, although the script doesn't really give either much that highlights their talents. The rest of the cast includes solid character actors like Willard Robertson, Thomas E. Jackson, Frank Reicher, and John Ridgely.

A fun movie but something is definitely different compared to the previous Farrell Torchy movies. For one, it's more focused on comedy. For another, the relationship between Torchy and Steve isn't quite the same. It isn't even all that focused on Torchy, for that matter. Gahagan and the criminals get a lot of screen time. The case in this one is pretty good, though. The police may be buffoons but the crooks are interesting and pretty smart for B movie villains.
