Rare overlook film noir
12 October 2016 | by (Charleston, SC, United States) – See all my reviews

Solid little film noir along the lines of BLONDE ICE.

Femme Fatale Gina Crane (Marjorie Lord) formally Gina Hadley, is tracked down and blackmailed by her old lover Floyd Durant (Robert Shayne), who's familiar with Gina's habit of marrying rich old farts and then taking them for all their worth. Durant threatens to tell Clinton Crane (Pierre Watkin) of Gina's spotty history but before he can, the strange Mrs. Crane knocks him off and frames another woman for the killing. Things come to a head when Gina is picked as one of the jurors at the woman's trial. Nice twist ending in this overlooked rare noir.
