Audience Reviews for Lady at Midnight

I watched this movie via Netflix stream. Any movie that shows a child using a gas stove unattended and playing with a detective's gun can NOT be all that bad! Hey, this movie is straight forward, honest '48 entertainment. The cast, replete with an obnoxiously sweet little girl, is excellent and a lot of them are recognizable character actors of the time. The movie is a gem as a study of mid-40 home decorating, clothes, manners and attitudes. But there's a bonus, it's entertaining. Footsteps are heard at midnight by an alert mother. The parents go their child across the hall. The tyke swears that a pretty lady sat on her bed and told her she was adopted. Naturally, they don't take her seriously until things develop to where they find out someone might be trying to take their adopted daughter away and the father feels he must hire a private eye. There are enough false leads to keep you guessing until the end. I'm glad I watch this movie. 5 Stars 3-26-13
