Did You Know?


This film is one of over 200 titles in the list of independent feature films made available for television presentation by Advance Television Pictures announced in Motion Picture Herald 4 April 1942. At this time, television broadcasting was in its infancy, almost totally curtailed by the advent of World War II, and would not continue to develop until 1945-1946. Because of poor documentation (feature films were often not identified by title in conventional sources) no record has yet been found of its initial television broadcast. It's earliest documented telecast was Friday 11 March 1949 on WATV, New York City. See more »

Lucille Gleason, Policewoman
16 August 2019 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Lucille Gleason is the police woman who supervises the local dance hall. She's friendly and approachable, and she helps out some fallen women by letting them stay at her house. She's out to get gangster Jason Robards, and has been letting his ex-girlfriend stay at her house, after escaping arrest. When Rpobards calls in a complaint about a noisy party, the police show up, the girl olts, and is taken for a ride by Robards. Plus Gleason loses her badge.

It's a decent story, and Mrs. Gleason is fine in the role, but director William J. Cowen can't raise a good performance out of Robards, and the pacing of the dialogue slows down abominably for skilled actors like Laura Treadwell, Dick Elliott and Henry Hall. The result is a 1-hour second feature that seems interminable.
