Call it a murder - musical?

7/10
Author: padutchland-1 from United States
7 August 2012

A good old fashioned murder then investigation by the police, at times bumbling, with musical and dance numbers thrown in for good measure. It's no secret due to the title that Gail Preston is murdered. She is a big time singer in a night club. She had called the police inspector prior to the show and asked him to talk to her at the club. During her number, shots ring out and she collapses to the floor, murdered before she can meet with the Inspector. Just then the Inspector walks in and like the good old capers, has police officers surround the building and makes all the patrons return to their tables. There are a number of people with motives as the police follow up the clues. Rita Hayworth as a mean spirited singer who calls the shots for the club. She was very good in this early role and only about 20 years old at the time. There are some good dance routines with music making this a bit of a musical in a way - a murder musical? Also there was comedy relief with some of the police as well. Not the greatest movie you ever saw, but not bad either if you remember it was an early crime movie.
