  1. Fabulous old time comedy/mystery that I enjoyed a delightful morsel at a time. Too many current so called comedy mysteries present both parts in a loud, clumsly Did YouGet It way. I can count on these classis TCM films to present their heroes, villans and plots in a somewhat predictable fashion. The boy and girl end up together. The bad guys get theirs. On the way, though, I laugh, shed a tear and get a brief respite from the true ugliness on the news. Because of my real world, I NEED my TCM films, plots and characters more than ever. Patrick G.

  2. I fell in love with Ann Savage from watching DETOUR so many times. Zucco came to a grim end; the actor who played  "mad" doctors so well spent the 1950s in asylums suffering from dementia (but imdb does not mention that, wiki does, and Kenneth Anger's book HOLLYWOOD BABLON goes into grim detail).
