Martha Driscoll tried to get Tom Neal off the hook in a murder case
"Blonde Alibi" (1946) is an old Universal mystery and a good one. If all the 1940s mysteries were as good as this one, we'd be rolling in good entertainment. It's actually more noirish than I expected, given the light or comic treatment it has between the main cop,Donald MacBride, and his sidekick, the dense Peter Haynes.
Tom Neal and Martha O'Driscoll make an attractive couple. This was her last feature for Universal as she neared her retirement from films, and an era she preferred to shelve as she got on with her non-Hollywood life.
Other familiar and capable faces include Marc Lawrence, Robert Armstrong, Douglas Fowley, Samuel S. Hinds and Elisha Cook. The less familiar ones, however, are the more prominent and important to the story: Oliver Blake and John Berkes.
It's all about who killed a certain doctor.
