The Lady Confesses

This is a pretty shabby film noir from Poverty Row studio PRC. It is a bit of a novelty today as Hugh Beaumont, who went on to play the ideal suburban father in “Leave it To Beaver,” here portrays a drunken playboy who becomes embroiled in a homicide investigation when his estranged wife suddenly reappears just before their divorce becomes legal, and soon turns up murdered. Although the shoestring budget is evident throughout, there are a few nice shots that pop up every now and then, such as a woman opening her jewelry box to find the shadowy figure of a man lurking in the reflections of the mirrored lid.
