| Pleasant but not riveting Monogram
I enjoy the B murder mysteries from the 1930s and 40s and this one is a Monogram mystery without a lot of sparkle but at least the print I saw of it on Netflix was pristine – and this is a good thing. Robert Lowery who has a very likable if somewhat bland screen persona is an aspiring reporter who gets his job because of his policeman father's pull. But actually he's a good reporter and soon stumbles (almost literally) over the body of a murdered showgirl who has just been released from prison. While investigating the murder he meets the dead woman's sister who unknowingly holds the key to her sister's murder. While there is a solid supporting cast including the always reliable and always suave and sly John Miljan, this movie is a little too light on snap and humor - but still a pleasant way to pass an hour.
