Quick Overview

Starring Chester Morris, Harriet Hilliard, Richard Lane, George E. Stone,

Lloyd Corrigan

Directed by Edward Dmytryk



Print: black/white

Runtime: 65 min.

Genre: drama

Print Quality: B



Chester Morris makes his second screen appearance as

crook-turned-detective Boston Blackie in this superior series entry. This

time, Blackie gets into trouble when he attends an art auction with his

millionaire pal Arthur Manleder (Lloyd Corrigan). It so happens that the

auction gallery is run by thieves, which heroine Diane Parrish (Harriet

Hilliard) has just discovered. To keep her quiet, head crook Joe

Buchanan (Ralph Theodore) takes a shot at Diane, but though he only

wounds her he kills sculptor Allison (Walter Soderling).

Conclusion-jumping Inspector Farraday (Richard Lane) assumes that

Blackie fired the shot, forcing our hero to spend the rest of the film

eluding both the police and the criminals. Highlights include a hilarious fit

of rage perpetrated by secondary villainess Joan Woodbury, and an

amusing if slightly sadistic running gag involving hapless ice-cream

vendor Billy Benedict.
