| short but sweet
This flick fulfills the need for diverting entertainment. The petite actress playing Jean Royce is perfectly sweet, charming, and guileless. The newspaperman is the all-around good-guy. The police sergeant, a comic relief guy, practically steals the show. There's even another fellow who works in the newsroom who has a severe stutter that is played for laughs. As for the mystery story aspect, it is halfway decent. And check out the petite chick's penthouse apartment furnished in chic art-deco style. There's nothing here to bog down the film ; it's to-the-point-ness really works in its favor. It goes down easy, like a glass of 7up.
