The Private Dick, the Cop and the Girl

There just aren't enough good private eye detective mysteries from the golden age of movies . . . you know . . . where the detective is just one meal away from starvation, and his secretary is about to quit . . . and all of a sudden a client walks in with a fist full of cash and a seemingly simple job for the detective . . . And then all hell breaks loose as the client is killed before the detective can get a handle on things, so for a short and quick hour we follow the private dick as he chases clues and his secretary and stays at least a step or two ahead of the flat-footed and good natured cop buddy that is also on the case. Ralph Graves plays the part of Clay Holt, a private eye without any clients who suddenly gets $500 smackerooos from a fellow named Davidson . . . who is a jeweler in trouble . . . and he says he needs $50,000 quick because his books have been cooked and the missing money is about to be discovered . . . and there is a priceless pearl necklace involved. Davidson thinks his daughter's former husband stole the money, but isn't sure, and invites the private eye to come to a country club party that evening to discuss the case in detail. Later that night at the country club we meet Davidson's daughter and her new husband . . . and her old ex-husband who is suspected of stealing the fifty grand is there . . . and so is an ex-con pickpocket that looks like he could steal the glint from your eye without you knowing it. Of course there is also the cop . . . our private dick and the cop have gone 'round before, and have no love for each other. Clay is just starting to get familiar with all of the characters when a shot rings out and his client Davidson is stone-cold dead, among a party full of suspects. Now, if you think too much, and get picky about every little plot detail fitting perfectly you will miss the fun . . . much like in The Big Sleep with Humphrey Bogart . . . the plot may not all fit real snug, but it is a ton of fun to roll with the story and enjoy the ride. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter on it and enjoy the chase.
