Captain John Braddock worked in the Racket Squad of the San Francisco Police Department. He sought to protect the public from the various confidence rackets that were a more direct threat to them than outright robbery. The series was based on actual case records from police departments around the country and described in detail the means by which shady characters fleeced unsuspecting people of their money.
Detectives stage a fake train robbery to attract the evil Reno Brothers and their outlaw gang. Gritty, forceful western. Scott takes time out to romance their pretty sister (Powers) before bringing the gang to justice.
Only color "Road" movie has lush trappings, many guest stars and good laughs. Hope and Crosby play a pair of Vaudeville performers in competition for Dorothy Lamour, pursuing her to the South Seas island of Bali, where they must content with all sorts of jungle dangers, from cannibalistic natives to various Hollywood stars who appear in hilarious cameos. The Humphrey Bogart scene is a classic. Excellent entry in series.
