(aka 'The Dead Take No Bows')

directed by Eugene Forde
USA 1944

 

  Dressed to Kill is one of the most enjoyable 'B' movies I've ever seen. Lloyd Nolan is terrific as Michael Shayne, detective, and his supporting cast is superb to say the least. William Demarest is the best hapless police inspector this side of James Gleason, a youthful Henry Daniell plays a stuck up prig to perfection, Milton Parsons is a bad baddie, and we even get small turns from Mantan Moreland and Billy Benedict. The story is reasonably well written, fast paced, and a lot of fun.

Comments:

This print was quite acceptable and although I did notice some flickering contrast in the beginning moments it soon settled down to general consistency. It is in pretty good shape considering the age of the film. No extras aside from the Fox trailers of other DVD releases. Audio was a little weak but acceptable. I'm not crazy about the colorized menus. This is a great price for a clandestine light-hearted gumshoe tale that has more going for it than you might expect.
