Nice "B" Mystery
15 January 2013 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

The Truth About Murder (1946)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Fans of the mystery/murder genre should find this one entertaining enough to sit through. A husband finds out that his wife is about to leave him and before long she's found shot to death. The husband is arrested but his friend/attorney (Bonita Granville) thinks he's innocent so she sets out to prove it while her boyfriend/D.A. (Morgan Conway) tries to prove his guilt. THE TRUTH ABOUT MURDER is a pretty entertaining "B" film and especially for fans of Granville. Most film buffs will remember her as Nancy Drew and various other roles that she did as a child. It's always interesting seeing child stars in more adult roles and I thought Granville did a very good job here. She was quite believable in her part but she also managed to carry the film with her charm and especially with some nice comic timing. Conway was also very good in his supporting role and I thought the two stars had some nice chemistry together. The plot itself is a tad bit too easy to follow as it's very clear who the killer is, although the reason that comes out at the end was a bit far-fetched. Director Lew Landers at least keeps the pace of the film going very well and the 63-minutes fly by.
