Nancy Drew Detective
I read all the books as a young girl and I came across this series last year. They were very well made. Much better than the modern 1970's series. Really enjoyed these movies with Bonita Granville.
Nancy Drew - Detective (1938)
Good Nancy Drew entry, Bonita Granville is well cast and it is short, sweet and very entertaining. Good cast, fun.
BONITA GRANVILLE SAVES THE DAY!
BONITA GRANVILLE STARS IN "NANCY DREW - DETECTIVE", A VERY ENTERTAINING FILM ABOUT A YOUNG DETECTIVE WHO ESCAPES TROUBLE (OFTEN OF HER OWN DOING) WHILE SOLVING THE CRIME. TEENAGE NANCY DREW (BONITA GRANVILLE) MUST FIND OUT WHAT HAPPENED TO THE WOMAN WHO PLANNED TO DONATE A LOT OF MONEY TO HER SCHOOL. ALONG WITH THE WOMANS DISAPPEARANCE, BONITA MUST DEAL WITH AN IDIOT POLICEMAN, AN ESCAPED BIRD, AND HER BEST FRIEND (FRANKIE THOMAS). AS USUAL IN THE "NANCY DREW" FILMS, BONITA SEEMS TO CAUSE ABOUT AS MUCH TROUBLE AS SHE SOLVES. BUT BY THE END OF THE FILM, SHE SEEMS TO BE ABOUT THE SMARTEST ONE IN TOWN. AS ALWAYS, THE SPUNKY BONITA GRANVILLE DOES AN OUTSTANDING JOB AS NANCY, WHILE FRANKIE THOMAS AND THE REST OF THE CAST DO GREAT AS WELL. "NANCY DREW - DETECTIVE" WAS THE FIRST OF THE "NANCY DREW" FILMS, AND THIS SERIES OF MOVIES GAVE THE ENERGETIC STAR BONITA GRANVILLE THE PERFECT CHANCE FOR HER TO SHOW WHAT SHE COULD DO. THIS FAST PACED B-MOVIE IS A LOT OF FUN, AS ARE ALL OF THE "NANCY DREW" MOVIES, AND BONITA GRANVILLE IS ALWAYS FUN TO WATCH!
