Madonna of the Desert (1948)

A valuable Madonna has been unearthed in a ranch owned by Joe Salinas (Don Castle). Crooks Nick Julian (Sheldon Leonard) and Monica Dale (Lynne Roberts) plan to steal the Madonna and replace it with a replica made by skilled forger Hank (Paul E. Burns).

When Monica is trying to switch the Madonna she learns that Joe truly believes that it is supposed to bring good luck to good people and begins to have second thoughts on the plan... Naturally Nick isn't too pleased on the change of plan.

So a neat little crime movie with a few twists and turns plus the added mystery of the Madonna. Leonard and Roberts play good roles.
