Behind Green Lights (1946)

5 July 2013

I just finished watching Behind Green Lights (1946) Staring Carole Landis, and John Ireland.

Police lieutenant Sam Carson investigates a political murder after the victim is dumped at the door of police headquarters.

I downloaded this film from the Free Film Noir Movies website and loaded it into iTunes so I could watch it on the big screen.

I liked it as it was a classic style 'who done it' murder mystery. The police lieutenant had to interview several suspects in the death of a prominent public figure only to find out it was the person he'd least expect.

The film was only an hour-long which was nice being that many contemporary movies seem to want to run 2 ½ to 3 hours, which is a long time for me to sit and watch anymore - as a rule, and there are exceptions of course.

I must say that Carole Landis was quite the stunning lady too. Very beautiful and supremely well dressed. It's too bad she committed suicide two years after this film in a fit of real life lovers rage.
