The Golden Eye (1948) Title Card...
The Shanghai Chest (1948) Title Card...I think this is one of the best designed Monogram cards or at least, I like the look of it...

Coincidentally, I just watched last night an early 1990s video on You-Tube about the making of Diamonds are Forever and Marc Lawrence, looking a  little older, was one of the people they briefly interviewed reminiscing about the making of that film.

Mark Lawrence was in a at least two of the Bond films...  Diamonds are Forever, The Man with the Golden Gun.  ...Ed K.
I don't think that anyone is going to mistake the Monograms for The Black Camel, ot Treasure Island. ... Ed K.
Docks of New Orleans (1948) Title Card...
First Winters film Title Card...The Chinese Ring (1947)...
Nadir...The Trap (1947)...
Well, I did not want to be too negative but was tempted to say when I posted the lobby card that this entry was up there with Secret Service and Trap; e.g. that Dangerous Money is also a pretty bad seems we are in agreement on most of these!
I think "Dangerous Money" is a weak movie with a somewhat confusing script.  Part of the storyline centers on a Treasury agent who is killed while trailing counterfeiters, and part of the story concerns recovering valuable artwork that was hidden during World War II.  These two themes partially come together at the end of the film.  There are cast changes with Charlie working with his son Jimmy instead of Tommy who had appeared in the early Monogram films, and Chattanooga substitutes for Birmingham Brown.  I'd be interested in hearing other opinions, but I rank this film low on the list.
