Nifty thriller with plot twists.
22 October 2001 | by (Montana, USA) – See all my reviews

A reporter marries a dying heiress though in love with the moll of an imprisoned gangster. When it appears his wife is in no hurry to die, the reporter and his girlfriend plan murder with an airtight "alibi." Alas, things do not go as planned (do they ever in the movies?). This may seem dated now but when viewed from its release date of 1946, it is a nifty thriller with good plot twists.
