Here’s a strange little film about a “Strange Woman” played by Hedy Lamar and directed by Edgar G. Ulmer. In the style of film noir, this film tells the story of Jenny Hager, a beautiful woman who can get men to do anything she wants.
Chuck Connors as plays an over-the-top, slightly psychotic big-game hunter. He’s out for revenge on an army officer who he thinks got his brother killed.
Strange Illusion is a 1945 American film noir. This thing is a budget B. If there is any better copy of this, it isn’t mine. It’s still worth a watch. Reminiscent of a time when movies didn’t cost a hundred million bucks but had actual talent. It’s an Ulmer movie, that might get your attention about a man who is afraid of his mother’s boyfriend. Good performances and a decent plot.
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.
