even thought this movie was made in 1938,the picture and sound quality are excellent.there are also subtitles,which was good.the movie itself is funny,fast paced,and well acted.Bonita Granville plays the title character,and brings some sassiness to the role.i also liked the supporting cast,particularly her Sidekick Ted.i thought he had some funny lines.the chief of police was also a funny character.i thought the writing was good and i liked the story.even though the movie is 66 minutes,it didn't feel rushed or incomplete.it was well paced.this is the first of four movies in which Bonita Granville portrays Nancy,and if this any indication,i can't wait to watch the other three.for me Nancy Drew--Detective is an 8/10
