Mystery Movies for 2019 — Arranged by Studio

State Fair
“State Fair” was one of the mystery movies from Fox – and not commercially available, unfortunately.


And here’s a breakdown of 2019’s mystery movies by studio. This is the first time I have analyzed the studios behind the mystery movies and it’s not terribly surprising, though regrettable, that Warner Bros. and MGM are somewhat over-represented and Paramount is underrepresented. Including two Fox films gives Twentieth Century-Fox a slight edge. Otherwise, it would be below WB and MGM. Most of the films in the Daily Mirror archive are from TCM, which has the RKO, MGM and WB libraries, which explains why they predominate. I also like to run films and their remakes, and WB was the king of remakes.

The complete breakdown is on the jump.

As always, I am open to requests, if the film is in the Daily Mirror archive or available from a local library.
