"Has he been murdered?" -- Anne

"Well, that'd be my guess. When people die naturally you seldom find them wrapped up in the back seat of a car." -- Larry

A light and breezy tone similar to "Borderline" makes this Universal "B" crime film very enjoyable. "Bulldog Drummond's" Heather Angel finally gets a lead role and sparkles as a schoolteacher trying to breathe a little life into her life and falling into cime and romance in the process.

Anne Gladdes (Heather Angel) lets her hair down and takes her glasses off to put some zip into her life away from the classroom. When she jumps into a car to avoid a sleazy pick-up on a park bench, however, she is in for more adventure than she'd had in mind. The car she sort of steals is already stolen, and there's a stiff riding in the back seat. Larry Cameron (John KIng) has reported his car stolen, so the cops are on the prowl and the gangsters want it back even worse.

It's fun and exciting for Anne, who's never had much happen in her life until now. She remains oblivious to the real danger involved until the stranded motorist she picks up discovers the body. Larry is shady in a harmless way and the two have both fun and romance while on the run from the cops and gangsters. Dalton Trumbo's screenplay walks the highwire between crime and humor deftly in this terrific little "B".

Constance Collier offers fine support as the plucky Mrs. Breckenbridge, whose legal juice will come in handy near the end. A sweet closing and a cute performance by Heather Angel make this one a delightful find for "B" fans.

This movie was such a lot of fun! I happened onto it while looking for "oldies but goodies" on Amazon Prime. This one surely did not disappoint! Lots of laughs! The story is hectic and madcap...and a bit improbable. But who cares if it could "really" happen? It's just FUN! Heather Angel is delightful and all the other characters are real...well...characters! I'll watch this again any time I need a bit of laugh out loud, real entertainment.

I enjoy REALLY OLD movies for their simplicity and joy. This is a great easy movie to watch and enjoy for its period costume, style, and enthusiasm.

Prim and proper schoolteacher, Anne Gladden (Heather Angel), is a paragon of virtue and discipline. One day, she realizes that she's 25 (!) years old, and fears she'll die a dull "old maid". So, throwing caution to the wind, Anne ditches her spectacles, buys some flashy new clothes and sets out on an adventure. Within seconds, Anne gets herself mixed up w/ gangsters, auto-theft, murder, and a police manhunt! On top of all this, romance blooms between Anne and a handsome man in need of a ride. It's unfortunate that Anne and her passenger have no idea what they've been carrying around in the car's back seat! Now, the chase is on. Can Anne and her new beau find happiness before either the cops or the gangsters catch up w/ them? HALF A SINNER is a fast-moving, zany comedy full of wacky situations, kooky characters, and snappy dialogue. Pure gold...

This is a love story that happens in the idealized United States culture of the 1940's \ 50's. A nice very young and beautiful alas eminently sensible school teacher is stopped in the hall. In front of her a rather forlorn matronly older school teacher who at age 40 has drawn up dried up spinster type looks that have clearly exceeded their "BEST IF USED BY Date! The older school teacher in her dour tone tells the younger school teacher of earlier times in her life when she too could turn a mans head with her stunning looks. Her story goes on to real a sad tale of romance lost and never found again. The older spinster school teach wise with age tells the younger school teacher NOT to hide her physical beauty under tons of sensible clothing that made her look an old frump long before her time. The old school teacher with unusual passion entreats the younger teacher to shed the stolid drab clothes, buy things that are so young and fresh they catch a mans eye keeping it.

The younger school teacher does just that and becomes an instant good looking knock out to the absolute shock of her live in grandma. Well turns out our sheltered young school teach ventures out into the world and she is not the worldly sort. While reading in the park a Masher approaches but he is not just an idle young man with lust in his heart he is also a petty gangster who is not too bright. The gangster hits on the nice prim but newly sexy school teacher and she puts him in his place literally. In a hurry to get away from this foul man she inadvertently steals a car but not just any car. This builds up to the enjoyable romp that is corny when looked at by the jaded eyes of 2013 viewers for whom today's love, sex and dating are far more fast paced and forward.
