This relatively minor 1951 Alan Ladd crime drama also stars Jack Webb and Harry Morgan of Dragnet TV fame (1951-1959 and 1967-1970). But this time, Webb and Morgan, instead of playing police detectives, are criminals. Alan Ladd plays the typical stony faced character who seems to have trouble smiling. Instead of this film, look for “Gun for Hire,” “The Blue Dahlia,” or Shane.” This is for Alan Ladd completest fans only.

Alan Ladd plays a Postal Inspector hot on the trail of the thugs who murdered his friend (and fellow PI). Not exactly a well-known film, but ridiculously entertaining. Tough AND funny to boot. Highly recommended.

Above average film noir. Alan Ladd does a decent job as a tough Postal Inspector infiltrating a gang, who are about to pull a robbery. Decent period music, as well.

Released in 1951 - This fast-paced, viciously violent, tension-filled Crime/Drama benefits greatly from superb location shooting in both Chicago and Gary, Indiana, which adds a very nice touch of realism to the whole story that can't be captured in a Hollywood studio._____ When relentlessly dedicated Postal Inspector, Al Goddard, is assigned to investigate the apparently senseless murder of a fellow co-worker, he finds that the sole witness to the crime, a nun, has now become a target for the brutal killers._____ Containing lots of tough, well-delivered dialogue, Appointment With Danger also features a first-rate cast, which includes - Alan Ladd, Jack Webb, Harry Morgan and Jan Sterling (putting in a smokin'-hot performance as a gangster's moll)._____ Filmed in stark b&w, this motion picture was directed by Lewis Allen who later went on to direct many episodes in the 1960s for such popular TV shows as - Perry Mason, The Rifleman, Bonanza, and The F.B.I.
