That's the first film directed by William Claxton. It's not a film noir, as I wrongly expected, but a sort of comedy yarn. Nothing more. Little boring - but not too much either, talkative, with a topic every one has seen before.
A night club girl is accused of a murder charge. A murder she, of course, did not commit. And the lead - Taylor - tries everything to prove her innocence. And also find the real killer.
So, you see, nothing really unusual in this little movie. I don't think Claxton made other films of this kind later, but mostly westerns, and fairly good ones. But B movies too, no great classics.
But, back to this one, we have seen worse. It's not a lousy picture.
