| Poor Presentation Ruins The Movie
A couple of radio mystery hosts try to solve an old real murder.

Before discussing the movie, I wish to point out that the sound track on the presentation I watched was set too low. I missed a lot of the dialogue, but did not feel it was worth making more than the usual effort -- setting the sound as high as possible, which was still not enough -- to ensure I heard everything. While this movie was clearly one of Republic's efforts to make a good movie, it did not seem much more than a programmer. That's a pity, because there are some first-rate performers in the roles, including Frank Albertson, Nils Asther, Mary Treen and Paul Harvey. The camerawork by William Bradford is appropriately creepy, and director George Sherman keeps this moving along. But mysteries require a lot of talk, and when the voices are inaudible, there isn't much left.
