She seeks the help of a psychiatrist, and under his orders, quits her job and moves into a smaller flat under a new identity. She becomes interested in painting and a handsome neighbor. He soon finds out about her past when an ex-suitor implicates her in a murder.Written by

The headpiece Hedy wears the first time she walks in the office is a 'snood'. It was very stylish in the mid- 40's. See more »

Dr. Richard Caleb, Psychiatrist:
And you don't want anyone to see inside, perhaps you don't even want to take a look yourself. My, women haven't the courage to face themselves so they look for escape on one excitement after another.

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.
