Audience Reviews for A Shriek in the Night
Two reporters continue to investigate a series of murders committed in an apartment building after the police have declared the case closed. Intricate yet uninvolving mystery, for diehard Ginger Rogers fans only.
This was a silly melodramatic mystery film, which I didn't find a good copy of, unfortunately. I thought it was an interesting cast, and there was some comedy in it, but overall not so good.
Programmer junk was one of 10! films Ginger Rogers made in 1933. Strictly bottom of the bill fodder this has a fast pace but zero production values and has to be the film where Ginger looks her absolute worst of screen. Badly photographed she appears chunky with awful hair and slapped on makeup. Putting that aside the story is obvious and the killer easy to spot. Besides Ginger it does provide an early glimpse of the terrific Louise Beavers but this is for completist only.
