Crime by Night Reviews

Slow-moving, low-budget mystery has Cowan as a slick private eye who, while on vacation with his secretary, Wyman, stumbles onto a murder case. The mystery in the plot is mostly in how they could call it one, since the identity of the murderer is revealed early in the film. This was the last starring role for veteran actor Cowan, who, for the rest of his career until his death in 1972, played diversified character roles, most often as the typically intelligent and urbane character wearing a pencil-thin-mustache.
