whodunnit... in hollywood
26 March 2018 | by ksf-2See all my reviews

Some fun scenes of early los angeles. Ken Farrell is Vic Morton, hollywood bigshot, now getting death threats. Sound and picture quality are a little shaggy. Stars Sheila Ryan and Ed Norris, who were actually married 1947 to 1949. Toni is dating newsman Jimmy McDonald, and they are caught up in the excitement over Morton. Morton has his own secrets that he doesn't want getting out, and that poses a problem for Jimmy... he has promised Toni that he won't print the secrets that could hurt Morton's career. It's pretty good. some intrigue. keeps you guessing, for a while. Directed by Basil Wrangell... was nominated for "Good Earth". Wrangell only directed a couple more after this one... but then edited for television into the 1960s, 1970s.
