Thanks Princess, I've seen the film 3 or 4 times over the years. TCM does show the film every once in awhile. Rosanno Brazzi's character was such a sleaze.

next

A woman who is in love with a man who is very ill, kills another woman because she was about to rob and kill him.

FOREVER AMBER?  Linda Darnell kills Margaret Wycherly, supposedly a nurse caring for an afflicted Cornel Wilde during the London Plague.  Darnell wakes up to find Wycherly trying to strangle him to steal his gold pocket watch?

I knew you'd get this one Arturo. Of course it's Forever Amber, Linda saving her beloved Cornel from evil Margaret Wycherly. You're up Arturo :)

Probably not, but the clues make me think of Laura?

This is not LAURA.  It is more of a comedy romance than a noir.  The male star was borrowed for this film, the female star had a multi-pic deal with the studio.  The culprit also worked frequently at this studio, and had won best supporting actor a few years earlier in another film done at this lot.

The culprit slips by more than once, but realizes he might be caught, and curbs his spree and gets rid of evidence.

The investigator initially met the woman since the culprit inadvertently implicated her; she was cleared of wrongdoing

Some of the investigator’s colleagues help in staking out the area.  The culprit slips under their noses more than one time.

I'm sure you forgot about this one but it was started on May 23 and the thread has been tied up for too long. Please give us the answer and open the thread. Thanks

The film is 20th Century-Fox’ MR. 880 from 1950.  It starred Burt Lancasteras an FBI investigator trying to find a small time counterfeiter who had been around a long while.  Edmund Gwenn pases bogus One Dollar bills in a fairly consistent pattern, and accidentally implicates friend and neighbor Dorothy McGuire when he puts 2 bills in her purse as change.  She is followed by the FBI, and cleared by them.  This starts a romance between her and Lancaster.

Open Thread.

Since there are no takers, I will go again.

This film stars this studio’s then top female star, along with a rising leading man there, as well as a male star borrowed for this film.

A woman with a dockside tavern meets an inventor.

Little Old New York?  It starred Alice Faye, Fox's top female star at the time, Richard Greene, rising leading man, and Fred MacMurray, borrowed from Paramount.

Correct on all counts. Starliteyes.  Amazing! 

The inventor Richard Greene played was Robert Fulton, on the cusp of inventing the steamboat.  As with many Fox films in that late 30s/early 40s, the script was done with the idea of making it with Tyrone Power and Don Ameche along with Alice Faye, after their blockbuster hits IN OLD CHICAGO and ALEXANDER’S RAGTIME BAND.

Your turn.

The Mating Game - Thelma Ritter, Gene Tierney, Miriam Hopkins, John Lund. Such a cute movie.
