Walter Pidgeon and Donald Meek reprise their roles as super-sleuth Nick Carter and his beekeeper sidekick Bartholomew in this glossy, comic thriller set along the Panama Canal. The second in the Nick Carter trilogy finds the duo vacationing in Central America when they’re called to investigate the mysterious disappearance of British merchant vessels, a scheme headed by local gangster Al Taurez (Joseph Schildkraut). Like Nick Carter, Master Detective, Phantom Raiders is a clever, fast-paced suspense film with an exceptional brand of humor, courtesy of Meek, who stands in as a welcome lunatic foil to the suave private eye.
