Unforgotten Crime – 1942

To boost listener ratings, radio personality Mike Jason (Dennis O’Keefe) encourages sponsors, of his murder mystery radio show, to offer a reward to anyone who can locate safecracker Jimmy Valentine, who is reportedly retired. Jason and co-worker Cleo Arden, not Eve, ( played by Gloria Dickson) lead the hunt. which takes them to a small and previously quiet town. There is little tough guy Mousey (George Stone, who else ?), who becomes overzealous over the possibility of winning the reward. There is Bonnie (Ruth Terry), Mike’s teen girlfriend, who adds further mayhem. The original film was cut to 54 minutes due to its’ B movie billing and later television. At times. scenes may seem unconnected, for that reason.
