Well, I don't think the whole Hoover-approved omnisciently-voice-over'd noir propaganda template gets more comic than this. We are dealing w/ the hardly-hallowed U.S. Postal Service here, after all. This one is truly brazen in its fascism. And stupid. But stupid isn't a major problem. It's part of why I had some fun watching this. Man, Alan Ladd is a lunkhead. No sly KISS ME DEADLY undertones (or overtones?) here.
