Jimmy Dale & Everett G. Northrup

Created by Harold Goldman

New York private eye and would-be ladies' man JIMMY DALE (Peter Cookson) and his wisecracking partner EVERETT G. NORTHRUP are sent, undercover, to the recently robbed Chicago branch of Cartell & Co. jewelers to protect the legendary Stonehaven diamond necklace in the 1944 romantic comedy thriller Shadow of Suspicion from Monogram.

Not that Jimmy is all business, mind you. He still finds time to hit on the secretary, Claire Winter (Marjorie Weaver).

It's utterly crazy, of course, the way only a cheapie B-film can be. The plot has more holes in it than a macrame quilt and the gags are more strained than baby food, but it's also sort of fun, in a train wreck kinda way. Nobody is quite who they claim they are, and everyone else seems to be double-crossing each other, plus there's a ton of head-spinning jibber jabber and purportedly snappy patter to keep things bouncing.
