    This was one of those quick inexpensive Republic Pictures ‘crime doesn’t pay’ type films. It had a good direction flow with decent scenes that weren’t absurd along with lesser known actors…which I give credit to two female’s, one I’m familiar with and the other not familiar with..Jeff Donnell which I am, she really does add value to this film..and Audrey Long who I’m not, surprises me with her performance. Both are young attractive single working girls, working in the same…

    Bob Hope has a heck of a time in this film-noir spoof, first as a baby photographer then as an aspiring hard boiled private eye detective…Hope as our jittery cynical hero delivers his one liners as smoothly as Alan Ladd’s short cameo was. This was enjoyable, and I finally got around to watching this from beginning to end..Hope puts a humorous spin on the noir genre…from the death row opening scene, his voiceovers, location shots, poking fun at Hollywood characters,…

    I really enjoyed this whodunnit staring  Lucille Ball who was left broke in London due to her show folding now tussling with desperate male customers as a taxi dancer, is then offer a job in a show but winds up going undercover for Scotland Yard as a ‘baiter’ for a poet serial killer who lures young attractive women through the personal ads at the same time baffles the police with poetic letters of clues.

    This is listed as crime, mystery film-noir…

    A Paramount worldly-wise romance drama has Marlene Dietrich as a unhappy wife of a burdensome British statesman Herbert Marshall, who surreptitiously travels to Paris to a discreet ‘salon’ and meets a lusty gentleman Melvyn Douglas who becomes enamored by her beauty as she flirtatiously plays along incognito. 
    This is a rewatch and I now realize and appreciate the sophisticated direction of the camerawork with the sharp observations, along with the subtle dialogue and humor...Marlene was uniquely gifted with expressive eyes...Marshall always immensely enhances any film...Melvyn is great at inquisitive characters...Edward Everett Horton and Ernest Cossart adding dry humor as the valet and butler.
