Storyline

This 1946 production/1947 release is a slight remake of 1937's "True Confession"---Hutton sings three songs and Carole Lombard didn't---with the heroine not adverse to telling a small (or big) white lie when she deems the situation can be improved. Peggy Harper (Betty Hutton)moves from the chorus line to the position of private secretary to a pawing producer, primarily so her lawyer-fiancee Oliver Clarke (Sonny Tufts)can be the benefactor of the producer's truck-load legal business. But she is forced to flee the office one night, to protect her assets, and leaves her hat, coat and purse behind. It should come as no surprise that the producer turns up dead and Peggy is accused of the deed...especially with Preston Sturges-favorite Alan Bridge the detective working the case. Peggy, not doing a whole lot to prove otherwise, is soon on trial for murder. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Betty Hutton is the Whole Show
28 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Betty Hutton is the whole show here in a remake of the failed 1937 film TRUE CONFESSION. Hutton plays a compulsive liar who gets involved in a murder case to boost the career of her boy friend (Sonny Tufts). But she gets more than she bargains for.

OK comedy and Hutton as always is a lot of fun. Tufts is a dud.

Good supporting cast includes Michael Chekhov as the nutty actor, Al Bridge as the detective, Ruth Donnelly as Hutton's mother, Rhys Williams as the prosecutor, Iris Adrian as a floozie, Jimmy Conlin and Ida Moore as jurors, Tom Dugan and Tom Fadden as moving men. Also spotted are Frank Faylen, Frank Ferguson, Jody Gilbert, Howard Freeman, Kathleen Howard, Mae Busch, Spec O'Donnell, Gladden James, Sarah Edwards, and Almira Sessions.

As usual Hutton is better than the material. And this film is not as good as the 1937 version starring Carole Lombard and Fred MacMurray.
