Lying Lips (1939)

** (out of 4)

Rather bizarre murder mystery from director Oscar Micheaux who's best remembered for Within Our Gates. An innocent woman (Edna Mae Harris) is sent to prison for murdering her aunt while her best friend and a Detective (Robert Earl Jones) try to find the real killers. This was my third film by the director but the first sound feature. His direction is pretty good throughout but you really have to question his screenplay, which starts off rather silly and just gets stranger from there. The case is eventually cracked when the Detective takes one man to a haunted house so that a ghost will scare the truth out of him. The performances are all pretty bad and yes, that Robert Earl Jones is the father of James Earl Jones.
