Skip Tracer, as its title implies, is an account of the methods of persons employed to recover automobiles, television sets, furniture or whatever on which the time-purchase buyers have defaulted.

Film emerges as one of the best ever turned out in British Columbia, though none of the players are known and all were recruited from Vancouver legit stage troupes. Film was made on a low budget of $145,000.

David Petersen is the central figure, the poker-faced, epitome of a hardhearted, alibi-contemptuous sleuth. Supporting players also believable.

There is a slow pace and a lack of action, but the film involves the viewer.
