In 1930, teen detective Nancy Drew debuted in print, captivating girls everywhere. In 1938, she came to the screen in the first of four films with Bonita Granville, whose Nancy is "brainy, feisty, resourceful and full of energy" (Leonard Maltin's Classic Movie Guide) - in short, exactly right. Sleuth with Nancy as she seeks a missing heiress (Nancy Drew, Detective), investigates a poisoning (Nancy Drew - Reporter), clears a family friend accused of murder (Nancy Drew - Trouble Shooter) and faces death in a secret tunnel (Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase). Whether you're revisiting Nancy or first met her in 2007's Nancy Drew movie, we invite you to enjoy mystery and fun that moves like a speedy blue roadster!
