The Blue Dahlia

  • 1946
  • Movie
  • NR
  • Mystery

Tidy film noir , although we prefer Ladd and Lake in THIS GUN FOR HIRE. This is the only film script Raymond Chandler did directly for the screen, and the script reflects his hard-boiled, grim wit. Ladd returns from the service, finds wife has become a tramp. When she's murdered, he has to clear himself. Taut film still plays like house afire.
