Juicy suspense, tracking the "Lipstick Killer", amid a seething media empire power struggle.  One of my favorite Fritz Lang-directed films, and a must for Dana fans.  And what a cast!  There should be more of deliciously acidic Ida Lupino, though.

If you haven't seen Dana Andrews in "The Best Years of Our Lives" made in 1946, you should. One of his finest performances, and certainly one of the great WW11 movies.

Ida Lupino was a very underrated woman in hollywood.

 

She often directed the movies se was in, but times as they were, never got screen credit.

 

She also wrote many scripts.  I always liked her no nonsense, I GotCha attitude

 

Very underrated....Also Richard Widmark...also underrated...

 

Any others spring to mind??

Just wanted to add Howard Duff and Ida Lupino were married. 

 

I don't think they had any scenes together in this movie. But I did like his quote to Dana Andrews:

 

Ed Mobely : But I didn't do anything!

Lt. Burt Kaufman : You think if you're drunk, it doesn't count, huh?

 

I remember watching Ida Lupino and Howard Duff together on the  Lucy Desi Comedy Hour.
