Movie Info

British actor Robert Douglas stars in the Warner Bros. crime melodrama Homicide. Douglas plays police lieutenant Michael Landers, whose suspicions are aroused when the only witness to an accidental killing is found dead, an apparent suicide. Though the case is officially closed, Landers investigates in his off-hours. He soon uncovers evidence of an illegal wire-service gang, operated by an outwardly affable fellow named Andy (Robert Alda). Landers finds an unexpected ally in the shapely form of cigarette girl Jo Ann Rice (Helen Westcott). Old-timer Monte Blue has a juicy supporting role as a desert sheriff. Writer William Sackheim based his Homicide screenplay on his own story "Night Beat."

Because the star was so stiff, the film itself felt stiff.
