And this movie would be?
[Update: Please congratulate Amy, Richard Heft, Michael Ryerson, Sarah, Greg Clancey, LC, Lee Rivas and Benito for identifying our mystery film. ]
Here’s another clue… I’m guessing this location is…
Our movie also has this mystery (not) location…..
And look who I found! Please congratulate William Stansel, Herb Nicholas and David Andrews for identifying our mystery film.
And here’s another interesting location….
Please congratulate Dewey Webb and Lee Rivas for identifying our mystery chanteuse.
One reason our mystery movie is a well-known example of 1950s film noir is because it uses actual locations, like Angels Flight. I have been searching various archives for historic photos showing the Los Angeles County coroner’s office in the Hall of Justice, but I didn’t see anything that looked like this.
Then I watched a bit more of the film. Look at the camera position. This must be a set.
Because in another (totally not) mystery movie, the morgue looks like this.
Please congratulate Lee Rivas and Barbara Klein for identifying our mystery chanteuse, and Bob Levinson, Dewey Webb, Mary Mallory, Don Danard, Arye Michael Bender and Greg Clancey for identifying our friendly morgue attendant.
