    Hello Folks,
    Recently saw a trailer for a late 40's or early 50's U.S., film noir wherein a private eye called Strange call a local paper's Ad section to place an ad for a secretary stipulating "must be between 22 & 28 with blonde hair ect"...At this point a young blonde lady enters his office & taking the fone out of his hand says "forget that ad the position's filled." Cant get the title~can anyone help?? Tks Charlie.

    The Inner Circle (1946)?
    With Warren Douglas as Johnny Strange

    [first lines]
    Johnny Strange: [over the phone] Hello, this is Johnny Strange of Action Incorporated. No, not Strange Action Incorporated. Johnny Strange *of* Action Incorporated. Yeah. I want to place an ad in the Help Wanted Female. Mm-hm. Wanted: secretary to human dynamo. Exclamation point. Must be blonde, beautiful, between 22 and 28, unmarried, with a skin you love to touch and a heart you can't.
