Sam Spade: The Stopped Watch Caper

Some extra-nice bits in this episode from April 10, 1949. Effie's sister Buffy fills in because Effie is visiting her sick friend, actress Lurene Tuttle (who, of course, plays Effie). And later we meet a character doing a perfect impression of Peter Lorre. "Thank you, Jimmy Stewart," says Spade. All this and a detective story too.
