Man from Headquarters
This Monogram "special" stars Frank Albertson as the title character, a police reporter named Larry Doyle. Our hero solves a murder case in Chicago, then moves on to St. Louis-but not voluntarily, since he has been kidnapped by the minions of the Windy City gang leader (Max Hoffman Jr.) against whom he is scheduled to testify. Eluding his captors, Doyle befriends another "lost soul" named Ann (Joan Woodbury). Together, Doyle and Ann manage to make their way back to Chicago, but not before the imprisoned mobster has arranged to frame our hero on a robbery rap. One of the lesser gangsters is played by future movie and TV favorite Arthur O'Connell, while perennial "3 Stooges" foil Christine McIntyre shows up as a telegraph girl. Rollo Lloyd, nearly always enlisted as an actor, authored the script in 1935; it was produced in 1942, four years after his death. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
