So the two don?t get married. She discovers that her former fiance?s love letters were written by someone else?someone more intriguing, younger and sexy in a bad-boy way?but they don?t get along?

 

(...Metz, is it possible for you to delete that picture? The size seems to have distorted the view on the thread)

Metz, no apology necessary...as to resizing, I don't know much about handling photos on this site. Not a big deal...

 

Here's the current movie w/clues to-date, plus more info. How about a guess or two??

Our girl needs work so, through her friendship with those she met on her journey, she gets a job. She and her co-workers endure a rivalry with the town floozies.

 

(she sings a catchy, zippy, Oscar winning song?)

It's *The Harvey Girls*...

 

The Oscar-winning ?On the Atchison, Topeka and the Santa Fe? dominated radio during summer/fall 1945 ? the most popular version spent 7 straight weeks at #1 on the Billboard charts and for 8 straight weeks on ?Your Hit Parade.?

 

visualfeast, you've done it again - and the thread is yours...

Thanks, LadyEve...

 

Here's another one:

 

This film was probably the first to delve into the actual workings of the police department in solving a murder case...what we now know as CSI. It featured a young actor from a neighboring country and a character actress know for her wry humor.

not naked...

 

This film deals with events taking part on the other side of the country...LA in the fifties, when there were still remnants of an earlier smog-free age. Elements are a minor romance, a birdcage and a telephone number scribbled on a wall...

metz - try this

 

(Example)

<img src=http://s266.photobucket.com/albums/ii243/oldpackard/ height =400 width =300>

 

Just tag *height =400 width =300* onto the end of your picture URL line . Make sure you get the spaces in there as in the above example. Very important.

 

Playing around with the numbers will shrink or enlarge your pic.

Remove the slash mark after ".jpg", and leave a blank space before "height". And change 400 to 225.

 

Your movie is "We Are Not Alone", with Paul Muni and Flora Robson, 1939.

The movie you are thinking about is Ricardo Montalban in ?Mystery Street? from 1950. It takes place up around Boston.

visualfeast's 2nd clue:

 

*This film deals with events taking part on the other side of the country...LA in the fifties, when there were still remnants of an earlier smog-free age. Elements are a minor romance, a birdcage and a telephone number scribbled on a wall...*

Yes, Elsa Lanchester is the character actress with the "wry wit". She also owns the bird and birdcage. The telephone number is scribbled on her apartment house wall.
