murder on the ....yawn..
16 March 2018 | by ksf-2See all my reviews

Co-stars Shirley Grey and Charles Starrett. Grey was only in films for about five years, then family tragedies and declining popularity led her to retire. Starrett was the king of B parts in westerns from the 1930 to about the early 1950s. In the film, shots are fired in the bell tower, but no-one saw the murder happen. Then it goes all around the mulberry bush (there's an OLD saying...). corrupt cops. who knows who's telling the truth anymore. B stars, in a C movie, with a D script. Caught this one on Moonlight Movies channel. I guess there's a reason they don't show this one on Turner Classics. Not so good. Directed by Richard Thorpe, who had started in the silents. Written by Whitman Chambers, who had several novels turned into films.
