Murder in the Blue Room (1944)

** (out of 4)

Forgotten Universal "old dark house" film is the second remake of their very own Secret of the Blue Room. People start disappearing within a strange room that has a history of death. If you've seen the earlier film then you can pretty much follow this one each step of the way knowing what's going to happen at each and every turn. The biggest difference here is that there are many musical numbers, which are pretty dumb but some nice laughs are scattered throughout. This was originally a vehicle for The Ritz Brothers.
