Nancy Drew: Detective
Nancy Drew and Ted Nickerson solve a kidnapping case of a wealthy elderly lady. Ted has to disguise himself as a nurse while Nancy beomse a "widow" in order to locate the lady they are rescuing.
I was born nearly 60 years after Nancy Drew's first mystery story, The Secret Of The Old Clock, came out. The best known TV show came out in the before I was born. I am part of the generation that started playing the Nancy Drew PC games, and still eagerly awaits each new release. Rumor has it that there may be another TV series featuring a new incarnation of the world's most famous girl detective. My point is that there is something enduring about this character. 4 generations of girls have grown up with the detective.
I have read all of the yellow hardcover books, seen all the episodes in the 70's TV show, watched the 2007 movie, and have around half of the games. As you can see, I'm a Nancy Drew fan.
Only 8 years after the first book same out a series of 4 movies based on the girl detective were released. I have to say that for 30's movies they are actually pretty good quality. Sure, the scripts are kinda corny but the filming technique is great and the stories are cute. I'm a fan of classic movies so Nancy Drew: Detective, and the others, were right down my alley. This movie is a must watch for all fans of the girl detective.

Carson Drew: Those men are not going to stand for Nancy Drew poking her little nose into their affairs.
Nancy Drew: Well, if you must insult me, you might at least do it in English!
Effie Schneider, Drew's Maid: I didn't know you wanted to be a lawyer.
Nancy Drew: Oh yes, I think every intelligent woman should have a career.
Nancy Drew: I guess it's just my woman's intuition. Every woman has one, you know.
Theodore 'Ted' Nickerson: What's the matter, the Recession still on?
