Full movie description "Bunco Squad":Told in semi-documentary style, this film deals with a little-known section of the Los Angeles Police Department which is assigned solely to checking on the activities of fortune tellers, swamis, palmists, and other occult societies, missing only Sciencetology. The primary story has L.A. police detectives Steve Johnson and 'Mack' McManus tracking down a wave of suicides they think have been influenced by a swindler-murderer Anthony Wells. The latter runs a pretentious house staffed with occultists across the board, and is trying to embezzle from Jessica Royle, a wealthy widow whose son was killed in action in World War II. Johnson uses his fiancée/actress, Grace Bradshaw, as an undercover operative to get inside information.
Reviews of the Bunco SquadI watched an excellent print of "Bunco Squad" (1950) last night, and liked it. Robert Sterling is a bunco squad detective whose job is to put some kind of a lid on the efforts of fake mediums, numerologists, crystal ball gazers, and those promising communication with the spirits of the dead. On the side, he romances Joan Dixon, a movie starlet. Eventually he finds a role for her as a police-devised medium, in order to wean Elisabeth Risdon away from the "Rama Society" whose aim is that she change her will and leave them $2 million. Douglas Fowley is Sterling's sidekick. The Rama Society is a scheme devised and led by Ricardo Cortez. We see in a lot of detail how the swindle is established so as to gain Risdon's confidence. The initial trick is to obtain information about her lost son, Phillip, and to feed it to her in small doses as communication with him. Cortez has assembled a gang of spiritualists, including Bernadene Hayes as "Princess Liane". John Kellogg has several functions, including deadly methods. Marguerite Churchill is Risdon's secretary who cannot persuade the elderly woman that she's dealing with fakes. Dante the Magician helps Sterling establish Dixon as a medium.
The story is told very efficiently and without pretense. It's well-acted. The location shooting and old cars add to the variety of con artists to impart a feeling of kookiness of the Los Angeles of that time. The plotting is very effective by weaving its various threads together so well.
