"I didn't commit this murder!", 6 March 2006
Author: Chris Gaskin from Derby, England

I've just seen Dishonored Lady for the first time and quite enjoyed it.

A fashion editor of a magazine has a breakdown after she crashes her car. She is taken in by a psychiatrist and when she has recovered, heads to New York where stays in an apartment block and has a new identity too. She falls in love with a scientist and also a millionaire. This millionaire is then murdered and she gets the blame for it, even though she didn't do it. Can she clear her name in court?

The cast includes Hedy Lamarr, Dennis O'Keefe and John Lodar. With the Wicked Witch of the West herself, Margaret Hamilton as a landlady.

Dishonored Lady is worth checking out. Enjoyable.

Rating: 3 stars out of 5.
