Phantom Lady (1944)

Don't know if you'll be as entranced as I was watching Ella Raines for the first time in this one but, regardless, this is a pretty good murder mystery which also stars Franchot Tone and Thomas Gomez. A man (Alan Curtis) is framed for killing his wife. His secretary (Raines), who also happens to be infatuated with him, doesn't believe it and works to clear him by finding "the title character". She is assisted in this task by the accused's best friend (Tone) and a police detective (Gomez) who, after the fact, doesn't believe that "Curtis" did it either. Elisha Cook Jr. plays one of his normal, that is to say quirky, roles extremely well too.
