Overview

Synopsis

The Lady in Scarlet
Lawyer Oliver Keith (Reginald Denny) in love with his secretary Ella Carey (Patricia Farr), but refuses to do anything about it during office hours. Thus, it's up to Ella to ardently pursue Oliver in her spare time. Their romance is temporarily shelved when Oliver and Ella combine forces to solve two seemingly unrelated murders. Lady in Scarlet is yet another spin on the Thin Man formula, this time from low-budget Invincible Pictures. No one expressed much enthusiasm over the film, though Reginald Denny garnered some of his best reviews in years. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

The Midnight Phantom
An overly verbose screenplay all but sinks this otherwise standard whodunit from Poverty Row company Reliable Pictures Corp. A reform-minded but hardheaded chief of police, James Sullivan (James Farley) has a yen for making enemies of both colleagues and family members, including daughter Diane (Claudia Dell), whose romance with plainclothes detective Dan Burke (Lloyd Hughes) is met with stern disapproval. Sullivan, however, is brutally murdered by a dart laced with curare and the same fate befalls the attending physician (Francis Sayles). Enter noted criminologist Professor David Graham (top-billed Reginald Denny), whose investigation soon points the finger directly at Lieutenant Burke. But is Burke guilty or is someone else behind the killings? A Spanish language version, El Crimen del Media Noche, was filmed simultaneously and starred Ramon Pereda, Adriana Lamar, and Juan Torena in the roles originally played by Denny, Dell, and Hughes. ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi
