written by Roy Huggins from his novel, and directed by S. Sylvan Simon, until then utility for MGM and directing serials for Red Skelton and Wallace Beery. It was maybe his first 'personal' long feature film, but he was to suddenly die three years later, at 41.

Franchot Tone is the private eye, in a very Hammett-ish story, complicated and pleasant, over-crowded with dames (Janet Blair, Janis Carter, Adele Jergens, Lynn Merrick), an interesting female side-kick —his secretary (Glenda Farrell), a doomed husband (Tom Powers), a boss and his bad guys:

and the ever great John Ireland:

… and Sid Tomack.

Though the use of the music is stupid to weep, the movie is entertaining enough, I'd say. And Franchot Tone's deep-voiced cold act is fine.

It seems there is no clear re-masterised copy, and the captures are bad, sometimes very bad.

For instance, this is how I only could catch Bixby (Glenda Farrell)'s car:

A pity in general, and for us in particular, since there were rather many out-door scenes,

… and a nice chase in Westwood LA and Santa Monica. The coolness of the chase was less technical (no stunt more difficult than a tête-à-queue) than in its location, among derricks, on sandy-dusty roads and streets.

I hope you'll nevertheless ID the few cars I took out of it, including Norma's convertible.

Just noticing this incredible chase scene, from 00:18:29 to 00:19:50.
I knew the black Ford coupe was a little later because of the parking lights below headlights, but thankfully it is cleared up above as '47 coupe and '46 Super Deluxe convert (woody). Must be an early '46... maybe a .42?
Anyway, the suspension behaviour of both Fords is about the same... pretty bad by modern standards, but somehow under control by stunt drivers?
Love the working oil derrick backdrop just before the "swap" at 19:17.

This chase scene belongs in a postwar Fords forum suspension discussion, and I'm voting "worn shocks".

Most Fords, either USA or European models, of that era, have suspension with solid axles, transverse leaf springs and rudimentary dampers. They weren’t designed with handling in mind, more for cheapness and ease of production. I would suggest that nothing was worn too badly on a 1 or 2 year old car, it was just not very good from the start. As a 1948 model myself, I am quite aware of the characteristics of such cars.
