Unhappily married Scott Henderson spends the evening on a no-name basis with a hat-wearing woman he picked up in a bar. Returning home, he finds his wife strangled and becomes the prime suspect in her murder. Every effort to establish his alibi fails; oddly no one seems to remember seeing the phantom lady (or her hat). In prison, Scott gives up hope but his faithful secretary, "Kansas," doggedly follows evanescent clues through shadowy nocturnal streets. Can she save Scott in time?Written by

"I'll Remember April" is the theme and leitmotif of this 1944 Universal movie. The song premiered two years before in the Universal production of Ride 'Em Cowboy (1942), starring Abbott and Costello. In that film, Frank Skinner was billed alone under "music by." In this film, Skinner worked under musical director Hans J. Salter (billed as H.J. Salter). Hence the song's tie-in to Universal and to Skinner. See more »

Elisha Cook at the drums and Ella Raines waiting for the train... that's all you need for this one. A memorable film that 99% of the public knows nothing about. Should be must-viewing for film noir buffs. And for those turned off by film noir... guarantee you'll love it even more.
