Full movie description "Double Jeopardy":Emmett Devery is being blackmailed by his former partner, Sam Baggott, who served a prison term years before on a shady business deal. Devery's daughter, Barbara, and his attorney, Marc Hill, in love with Barbara, know nothing about the situation. Baggott applies more blackmail-pressure and is killed by Jeff Calder, the boyfriend of cheating-wife Marge Baggott, who tried to double-cross Marge by getting the money himself. The police investigation of Baggott's murder leads to Devery, who admits that Baggott was blackmailing him but denies killing the extortionist. Hill and Barbara begin their own investigation.
Reviews of the Double JeopardyWhen real estate developer Emmett Devery (John Little) is charged with the murder of his alcoholic, unhappily married, former business associate (Robert Armstrong) who had been shaking him down to keep quiet about past dealings, his lawyer and future son-in-law Marc Hill (Rod Cameron) steps in to prove his innocence. Hill and his fiancé (Allison Hayes) try to unravel an extortion scheme launched by Armstrong and his gold-digging wife (Gale Robbins)
Double Jeopardy was helmed by veteran Republic Pictures director R. G. Springsteen. Springsteen who was better known for directing a string of Republic B-Western programmers, most notably the Rocky Lane series, does a good job in this gritty crime drama. Complete with blackmail, murder and duplicity, Double Jeopardy has the all the elements of later cycle noir. While the director, cast and crew do a nice job, the point A to point B script and short run time (70 minutes) doesn't provide for much mystery or suspense.
By the mid 1950's Republic Pictures had been beset with a financial downturn due to the growing popularity television. Republic had dropped the number of productions down to almost half of what it was only a few years before. Bogged down by it's low budget, even by Republic standards, Double Jeopardy, while technically competent, just doesn't ever seem to be able to get much traction. 70 minutes of passable but nondescript movie viewing.
