Murder for Love
What starts off as a typical murder drama spirals into a film noir type melodrama. Hugh Beaumont gets better as the film moves on as he transforms from a flighty, wise-guy newspaper reporter to a guilt-ridden lover. Ann Savage does what she did best: seduces, uses, abandons, while always looking great. Charles D. Brown as the driven, hunch-ridden newspaper editor whose dogged persistence solves the crime, also turns in a fine performance. The other supporting actors are okay. A better "B" movie than usual.
