Adventures of Kitty O'Day
Adventures of Kitty O'Day is a 1945 American comedy mystery film directed by William Beaudine and starring Jean Parker, Peter Cookson and Tim Ryan. It was a sequel to the 1944 film Detective Kitty O'Day. The two films were an attempt to create a new detective series but no further films were made. A third film, Fashion Model, also directed by Beaudine, was made using a similar formula but with another actress playing a heroine with a different name.
