| Penny Edwards Find Out You Can Do A Lot With A Flat Tire
Penny Edwards is on her honeymoon when her husband is killed by a carjacking ring. She can't identify anyone in the police files, but some discussion of the sorts of gangs that steal autos triggers something. She walks out of the police station, changes her clothes and hair, and goes underground looking for the men who murdered her husband. Meanwhile, the Missing Person squad is looking for her.

It's a decent way into this lone-women-against-the-crooks plot, and Miss Edwards offers a nice performance, changing her register as she changes her haircolor. There's the usual competent cast and crew that Republic had available to it when they weren't doing Vera Hruba Ralston movies: Fritz Feld, Robert Shayne and Phillip Van Zandt are a few of the names old movie buffs will recognize; and while Philip Ford may be better remembered for being John Ford's nephew and the AD on almost three dozen movies, his direction here is, as was common with Republic's better output, brisk and competent.
