Disgraced San Francisco private eye Mark Stevens, sprung from prison and seeking a fresh start, opens an agency in New York only to have trouble relentlessly dog him. He finds himself a fish out of water amidst a coterie of high-society art snobs, and suspects that a treacherous ally from his past is trying to frame him for a murder. Luckily for Stevens, his dedicated secretary, Lucille Ball, is as clever as she is attractive. This self-aware detective story is both an exemplar of film noir style and one of the first parodies of the genre. (Note courtesy of Noir City.) DIR Henry Hathaway; SCR Jay Dratler, Bernard C. Schoenfeld, from a story by Leo Rosten; PROD Fred Kohlmar. U.S., 1946, b&w, 99 min. NOT RATED
