As the last of Alan Ladd's series of film noir, "Appointment With Danger" (1951) is more comic than a spine-tingling thriller. The story centers on U.S. Postal Service Special Investigator Al Goddard (Alan Ladd) as he hunts down the murderers of a postaldetective. He must gain the trust of Earl Boettiger (Paul Stewart), track down a young nun, Sister Augustine (Phyllis Calvert), and take out a band of crooks attempting a heist. The murderers, played by Jack Webb and Harry Morgan, add an interesting twistto the film while the dialogue and action make it all worthwhile.
