Movie Info

Casey (Dane Clark), a U.S. Army veteran living in London, is nearly broke and drowning his sorrows in booze. But then he meets Phyllis (Belinda Lee), a stunning blonde with money to spare who offers Casey cash to marry her. Suspicious but with nothing to lose, Casey agrees, only to wake up the next day hungover, confused and in a stranger's room with blood on his coat. Phyllis is nowhere to be seen -- except in the newspapers. It turns out her father was murdered, and all clues point to Casey.

Audience Reviews for Murder by Proxy (Blackout)

  • Oct 31, 2013
    From The Hammer Film Noir Collection. The film begins with Dane Clark being offered a strange marriage proposal from a woman he just met. Not only that, she offers this drunk guy 500 pounds to do the deed! However, upon waking up the next morning, he finds he's implicated with murder and there's no trace of the lady! So, it's up to tough-guy Clark to investigate and clear his name. Most fans of Film Noir will be surprised to hear that the British (not to mention, the French) made quite a few of these in the 1950s. Oddly, the Brit Noir films were made by Hammer Studios--the same folks who made tons of Dracula, Frankenstein and Mummy films from the late 50s to the mid 1970s! And, oddly, this film is directed by the studio's foremost monster film director, Terence Fisher. Overall, while this is far from a great film, it does stack up pretty well with the average American example, though I will admit that this film does have a few too many twists and turns . 4 stars 10-21-13

    Dane Clark is the pretty much the whole show here. Eleanor Summerfield is good in support.
