San Francisco Docks (1940) Poster

Barmaid in seedy docks does better detective work than the police to get her beau off a murder accusation, helped by a good priest who proves to be a good fighter for the truth.

| Yet more annoying unfunny sailor types
Irene Hervey (Kitty) spends the film trying to prove the innocence of her boyfriend Burgess Meredith (Johnny) who is standing trial for the killing of a politician. She has the help of a priest Robert Armstrong (Father Cameron) and her very annoying father Raymond Walburn (Admiral). This crew solves the crime!

Unfortunately, the film has many comedy moments and comedy characters – the kind that aren't funny. Main offender is Raymond Alburn. I see that IMDb has this film classified in the crime/drama/romance sections. Well, they should add comedy (but not the funny sort) to that. Had I read that I may not have bought the film. Also, there are several times when the screen is just black. What's going on! A poor quality film but it's OK – nothing special. One funny moment happens when Meredith is described as being 5'10". Ha ha. I don't think so.
