Hat Box Mystery ★★ 1947

A detective's secretary is tricked into shooting a woman and private eye Neal is determined to save her from prison. Although not outstanding, it's worth seeing as perhaps the shortest detective film (a mere 44 min.) to ever make it as a feature. 44m/ B VHS, DVD . Tom Neal, Pamela Blake, Allen Jenkins; D: Lambert Hillyer.
