33 Years Before DIRTY HARRY
30 March 2019 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Gangster Morgan Wallace gets kicked out of town, so it's on to the next. Chief of Police J. Farrell MacDonald has him dragged into DA Charles Trowbridge's office. Morgan's not worried. He quotes the bill of rights to them and walks out the door. As the months go by, his gang's depredations become worse and the local paper bears down on the DA, with letters from a pseudonymous "Junius" making claims that will force the administration out, leaving the town prostrate.

It's a decently written, shot and acted B movie, but it's at its worst when it's most serious. For the first twenty minutes of this one-hour Monogram picture, there's discussion of the Bill of Rights, claiming it's outdated and useless in the face of the modern gangster, a claim that sets my teeth on edge. Others may not find this so upsetting.

There are a few serious plot threads left hanging at the end of the movie. Presumably they will all be sorted out satisfactorily later.
