Crime by Night 1944 7+ out of 10
Detective Sam Campbell ( Jerome Cowan) and his secretary (Jane Wyman) find themselves in the middle of a murder case. They must prove that an ex concert pianist is innocent of killing his ex father in law during a custody case. The pacing of the story is quick with some twists and turns in the case that eventually lead them to uncover that the real killer is actually a spy. It has the feel of a subtler version of a Fletch movie set in the 1940's. The dialogue was crisp and the acting was good which makes for a good watch.
