Crime by Night (9-Sep-1944)

Director: William Clemens

Writers: Richard Weil; Joel Malone

From novel: Forty Whacks by Daniel Mainwaring (as "Geoffrey Homes")

Keywords: Mystery

A private investigator is hired by a man unjustly accused of murder. Complicated but rather ordinary 1940s mystery programmer. Jane Wyman has top billing but isn't in very many scenes; Jerome Cowan is the true lead, but you probably don't want someone that dim-witted investigating your cases.
