MCMXXXIX VII: Nancy Drew… Reporter

Nancy Drew… Reporter. 1939. William Clemens.

I mean… I didn’t expect much from this movie — it’s a shortish, goofy B movie thing. But it seems odd to me how little of the Nancy Drewiverse they’ve retained? I mean… I don’t remember much of Nancy Drew… but didn’t she have a gal pal? And stuff? This just seems to be… kinda generic… “teenage girl detective” stuff?

I may be totally wrong, and this is canonical Nancy Drew.

Other than that, there doesn’t seem to be anything wrong with this move: It’s a kids’ mystery movie, and the performances are pretty fun to watch. The mystery isn’t very mysterious.

This is a pretty amusing movie.

I mean, it’s not… good? But it’s amusing.
