Michael E. Grost Classic Film and Television Off-beat tale of police investigation benefits from supporting actors. Dec 27, 2018 Full Review Ken Hanke Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC) Terrific, fast-paced pre-Code cynical comedy melodrama. Rated: 4/5 May 24, 2006 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews So the story's not perfect! But this was a fun programmer, fast-paced and a typical Warner's potboiler of that time period. Rated: C Jan 1, 2000 Full Review Read all reviews
