"Mr. District Attorney" is a 1947 film starring Dennis O'Keefe, Michael O'Shea, Marguerite Chapman and Adolphe Menjou. It has a solid B cast that includes Jeff Donnell and George Coulouris. O'Keefe plays Steve Bennett, a defense attorney who is offered a job in the DA's office by Craig Warren (Menjou) and accepts. Unfortunately he's being played by the Chapman character, Marcia Manning, who's trying to get information from him that will help the case of her boyfriend, James Randolph (Coulouris). By listening in on a phone conversation, she finds out about a witness, who suddenly disappears.

Warren suspects Manning, who has a police record, so he sends Steve to Italy to find a witness and convinces Marcia to get out of his life. She does so, by marrying Randolph. When Steve returns and finds his girlfriend married, he blames Warren and quits the DA's office, making him ripe for exploitation by Randolph yet again.

This is an okay film, brightened by the performance of Michael O'Shea as an investigator who works in the DA's office. Menjou is very good as the DA. O'Keefe is a likable and attractive actor who doesn't register much here. Chapman is effective. I mainly know who she is from the '80s, where she was selling her own memorabilia and always had an ad in "Hollywood Studio Magazine." The movie felt a little dragged out.
