After a very promising start Confidence Girl goes haywire as our title character
Hillary Brooke develops a conscience from out of nowhere. You wouldn't see
this in either The Grifters or The Sting.
Tom Conway formerly The Falcon is her partner in crime. Chutzpah Conway
has in abundance as he both plays a private detective and works the cons
with her. Has the real cops fooled completely for quite a long time.
They and the film are at its best when they take pawnbroker Walter Kingsford. The film goes wrong when Brooke and Conway do a phony psychic act.
Nice documentary style and Conway is brazen to the end. But it also folds
in the latter half.
Falcon fans might like seeing Conway on the other side of the law.
