Storyline

Tony Blair, a producer of Broadway plays, is murdered on a California-bound passenger liner, and a series of events leads to an assumption that Claire Norvelle has committed the killing. Despite the fact that Blair was an obnoxious character, murder is murder and Barbara is accused of the crime. Complications arise when another murder occurs. The startling solution clears Barbara and provides a surprising explanation of the two murders. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Fascinating "B" Mystery Filmed on Board a Real Ocean Liner
16 June 2008 | by See all my reviews

Photographed by Sid Hickox, the cameraman that big stars like Bogart and Flynn always asked for, "Convicted" was largely filmed on board a real ocean liner. The stars in this case are Aileen Pringle, as the diminutive if feisty Broadway luminary, the lovely Dorothy Christy who steals every scene in which she appears, Richard Tucker who plays a most objectionable villain with startling conviction, and Jameson Thomas, surprisingly relaxed as the amateur detective of the piece. Also in the cast, unfortunately, is Harry Myers, who is a bit of a pain in more ways than one, but he does manage one or two effective moments. The plot admittedly is slight but the characters are as real as the setting. Director Christy Cabanne takes advantage of his locations to keep audience interest high even when nothing much is actually happening.
