Trivia

The failure of the original copyright holder to renew the film's copyright resulted in it falling into public domain, meaning that virtually anyone could duplicate and sell a VHS/DVD copy of the film. Therefore, many of the versions of this film available on the market are either severely (and usually badly) edited and/or of extremely poor quality, having been duped from second- or third-generation (or more) copies of the film.

Flick's Pics nearly nix the hicks
24 January 2012 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Double Exposure casts Chester Morris as the editor of a photo journalistic magazine called Flick who on the strong suggestion of the owner Richard Gaines hires Nancy Kelly as a new staff photographer. Chet likes her, but she comes as a package deal along with Philip Terry whom she says is her brother.

The film is from the budget school of Pine-Thomas who did the B films for Paramount. It moves at a nice clip and abruptly changes from comedy to murder mystery as Kelly is arrested for the murder of Jane Farrar the latest in a long line of wives for playboy Charles Arnt. Arnt's been giving Kelly the three times over and wouldn't mind adding her as yet another trophy wife.

The editor part fits Morris well and it was a break though not much of one from Boston Blackie. Farrar until she turned up dead was one hot tempered wife who was not in a mood for explanations. It's part of what gets her killed. Gaines is also memorable as the boss who makes all his employees take part in his physical fitness regimen.

Not a bad film as a second feature, probably to some Crosby or Hope film Paramount was featuring in 1944.
