Quick Overview

Starring Chester Morris, Rochelle Hudson, Richard Lane, Charles

Wagenheim, Constance Worth

Directed by Robert Florey



Print: black/white

Runtime: 60 min.

Genre: drama

Print Quality: B



Boston Blackie, the suave crook-turned-detective created in 1910 by pulp

writer Donald Boyle, had been popping up sporadically in films for nearly

two decades by the time Columbia launched its "Boston Blackie" series in

1941. Chester Morris starred as the title character in Meet Boston

Blackie, wherein the ex-thief protagonist and his underworld cronie The

Runt (Charles Wagenheim) meet a mysterious young lady named Marilyn

Howard (Constance Worth) while disembarking from an ocean liner. When

a murder takes place, Blackie and the Runt trail Marilyn to Coney Island,

followed in close proximity by Inspector Farraday (Richard Lane), who

thinks (as he always does) that Blackie is somehow tied in with the killing.

Before long, our hero and heroine are mixed up with a gang of foreign

spies operating out of a funhouse. Cleverly directed by Robert Florey and

atmospherically lensed by cinematographer Franz Planer, Meet Boston

Blackie was an excellent launching pad for one of Columbia's most

profitable film series.
