Dark Alibi

1946

Phil Karlson
Director
Monogram Pictures
Studio

Chan races against time to clear a man due to be executed for robbery and murder.

Quite enjoyable entry, probably Toler's best. An enjoyable cast of suspects/red herrings, comedy relief that's actually funny, and a satisfying ending. Fine direction by an up and coming Karlson.
