The Dark Corner 1946

From Amazon: The Dark Corner can't seriously be proposed as a great film noir, but it's one that people cherish. For one thing, it's unique in having Lucille Ball--who has absolutely no "splainin'" to do--as the smart, resourceful, devoted secretary of beleaguered private eye Mark Stevens. Lucy actually rates top billing, with Clifton up-to-his-old-Laura-tricks Webb and William vicious-brute-in-a-white-suit Bendix also getting their names above that of the hero in the credits.

The story started of well, peaking my interest with a quick visit of the police in the form of Lt Frank Reeves (Reed Hadley) to the office of Bradford Galt (Mark Stevens). Secrets in his past?
