Dennis O' Keefe's love for Marguerite Chapman leads him into big trouble
18 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was expecting a bland b-movie but Columbia delivered a cracking good film noir in "Mr. District Attorney" (1947).

The cask of pros sparkles in a twisty and fast-moving story. Look who is in this: Dennis O'Keefe as an honest assistant d.a., Adolphe Menjou as his fast-talking and thinking boss, Marguerite Chapman as a femme fatale whom O'Keefe cannot resist, George Coulouris as a businessman who employs tough tactics and hoods like John Kellogg, Steven Geray as his scheming accountant. Michael O'Shea provides light-hearted support, but nothing that disturbs the picture's serious mood. Ralph Morgan puts in a brief appearance too.

The attractive Chapman has a questionable past but when Menjou tries to shield O'Keefe from her, the attempt backfires. He cannot resist her (and she him) even after she marries Coulouris.

This fine movie came packaged in Vol. 8 of VCI's forgotten noir series. The print is excellent.

I'll add that Chapman is a knockout. She sports long dark hair and a 5' 7'' physique. A real looker who attracted many men in Hollywood.

I admit to being an absolute sucker for many of these beautiful ladies that Hollywood recruited, and they do not have to take off their clothes on the screen for anyone with eyes to appreciate their beauty. I can understand O'Keefe's infatuation for her in this movie, even after he knows she's a murderess. And she knows she has him hooked too. She makes this movie, adding considerable spice to it. Without her, it's a bunch of dull men running around, but she energizes them all!!
