Nancy Drew... Reporter (1939)

Nancy Drew... Reporter is a 1939 Mystery/Comedy based on the YA book series by publisher, Edward Stratemeyer.  It was a companion to the popular Hardy Boys Mysteries series of the day.  The Nancy Drew books were ghostwritten by numerous authors under the pseudonym, Carolyn Keene.

Nancy Drew... Reporter stars Bonita Granville as the titular character who enters the town newspaper's amateur reporter contest, and must clear a girl of Murder charges.  The film series was fairly well-received, and this is just one of several Nancy Drew Mysteries Warner Brothers made during this time.

The character has persisted throughout the decades, and the film series was recently revived to lukewarm reviews and reception.  The Nancy Drew Mysteries movie franchise was also revived in the 1970s, 1990s, and again in 2002 and 2007.
