Lucille Ball has a change of pace role as the loyal secretary of a private eye in the brooding film noir about a man being set up for a murder rap. Framed by his partner years ago, hard-boiled detective Bradford Galt served a two year stretch for manslaughter. Now trying to start over, he spends his time serving his clients and romancing his new secretary, Kathleen. But everything changes with the appearance of a sinister man in a white suit who's apparently working for Galt's ex-partner, Tony Jardine. When Jardine is killed, the police blame Galt. It's another frame, but if Galt can't prove he's innocent, this time he's headed for death row. A suspenseful, stylishly filmed story fuelled by crackling dialogue, an excellent performance from Clifton Webb, and Henry Hathaway's skilful direction, here is a riveting tale of one man's desperate battle to escape a private hell called The Dark Corner.
