MISS PINKERTON is a fun film starring Joan Blondell as a bored nurse who's hired to take care of a rich old woman who just found her nephew's corpse after he committed suicide...or was he murdered?  After Joan settles in at the old mansion a young, handsome detective asks her if she would keep and eye out for anything suspicious.  Well, she's got her work cut out for her cause all kinds of suspicious stuff happens from creepy creepers creeping around in the shadows to her being attacked to the old lady herself dying...from the pills Joan gave her!

For it's age MP is pretty entertaining and Joan is gorgeous!  Quick pace, cool looking mansion, humor that's still actually funny, good chemistry between Blondell and Brent, good mystery elements, nice photography with great shadows.  A film this old isn't for everybody, but I thought it was a lot of fun.  Will definitely watch again.
