I guess I'll watch just about anything if it's a mystery

...and this was a real mystery, as far as why it was made.

"Dangerous Lady" from 1941 is about a husband and wife, Duke Martindale and his wife, Phyllis, an excellent attorney.

They are working to clear a woman falsely accused of murdering a judge.

Two people who know what happened end up dead.

Duke and Phyllis sally forth, despite a big car chase and being held prisoners themselves.

This wasn't very good. It's from a Poverty Row studio, and as the other review alluded, they did these films in a few days with no retakes. June Storey and Neil Hamilton (the Commissioner on Batman) were good. I just wish I could have seen them; the print I watched was dreadful, as if it had been copied from a copy. Probably was.

June Storey was actually a costar of Gene Autry for ten films, and while she was alive, she appeared at western and memorabilia shows. She retired early on.

Both of them deserved better.
