Full movie description "Held for Ransom":The kidnappers of Herbert Scott have been paid the demanded ransom but have not returned Scott. The police chief suspects Larry Scott, the spendthrift nephew, but an opposing view is held by Morrison, federal operator in charge of the case. He assigns Betty Mason, his best woman operative, to the case.
Reviews of the Held for Ransom"Held for Ransom" is a cheap B-movie from the International Film Corporation--a company NO ONE has heard of today. Yet, despite its very low-budget and very humble cast, it managed to be quite interesting and worth seeing. To me, it's a great example of a B that proves they aren't all lousy films--many were, despite their limitations, pretty good in their own right.
The film begins by learning that there has been a spate of kidnappings. The latest, however, is different. While it appears the same gang is involved, once they received the ransom they still refuse to release the victim. The kidnapped man's nephew takes a vacation and blunders into the same town where the crooks are hiding. And, unknown to any of them, a female G-man (or is that a 'G-woman'?) is there as well--hot on the trail of the scum-bags. Can goodness triumph over evil? What do you think!
I think I liked the film because of the crazy old fashioned gangster dialog as well as the spunky lady Federal Agent. I especially loved when she, too, used this wonderful old-time language when she warned one of the crooks..."You're not too dumb--a move like that and it's the hot seat!". I just loved that line and the rest of the film was fast-moving and well done. While it certainly won't tax your brain or rival many A-pictures, for what it is, "Held for Ransom" is a good film.
