Please Murder Me is a 1956 film starring Raymond Burr and Angela Landsbury. It’s a film noir with Burr playing a lawyer. It’s like a character he would reprise a year later as the famous Perry Mason. Looking at this, it must be a reason that he got the role. I can’t say too much about this film because anything I would say from here would be a spoiler. I really enjoyed it. I hope you do too.
