Storyline

Murder mystery with a nurse (Lee Patrick) moving into a mansion after an apparent suicide to care for the old mother. The mother is kind of spooky, but so is the butler, and the girlfriend, and the doctor, and... you get the point. After the insurance policy is found, the plot becomes more interesting.

Bland Murder-Mystery

The Nurse's Secret (1941)

* 1/2 (out of 4)

Boring mystery from Warner has a man found dead with a gunshot wound to his head. Everyone believes it was suicide but Inspector Patten (Regis Toomey) thinks someone murdered him. To try and turn up some clues, he has his nurse girlfriend (Lee Patrick) enter the home and take care of an elderly woman and sure enough more bodies pile up. THE NURSE'S SECRET is pretty bland from start to finish and in a genre full of bland pictures, this one here has very little going for it. I think I've watched just about everyone one of these type of movies that come on Turner Classic Movies and this here is without question one of the weakest. I think what hurts the film so bad is that it runs just 64-minutes yet it feels much longer than GREED. The entire story isn't all that interesting and it's clear that they're trying way too hard to be mysterious. I say that because there are so many red herrings and each of them are portrayed in such an over-the-top way that it's obvious to tell that none of them are going to turn out to be the killer. With that said, this is one of those films where things just happen for no apparent reason and there's really no crime to figure out because you know that in the end there's going to be a group of people gathered and one of them is going to start singing. Patrick is fairly good in her role as the nurse and I also enjoyed Toomey. Julia Bishop is good as one of the suspects and I also enjoyed Charles Waldron in his part. THE NURSE'S SECRET is only going to appeal to film buffs who must check out every "B" picture that the genre has to offer.
