A routine mystery story with a sort of misleading title.

Audience Reviews for The Lady Confesses

Worth watching just for a non-Leave it to Beaver TV performance by Hugh Beaumont! Anyone familiar with the very popular sixties Leave it To Beaver will remember the dad, Hugh Beaumont. Just terrific at only an hour of your time! But the title baffles me and you can try to explain it to me anytime. Who confesses? Nobody confessed to any crime in this one. I was held in the grip of this film from the start. That's more than I can say for so many of these noir film classics. Most are so patheticly melodramatic or even foolishly written. Not this one. See this short clip of the film to wet your appetite: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FquO-1L5YtI "Shortly before she is to be married, a young woman gets a visit from her fiance's wife, who had been missing for seven years and presumed dead. Soon both the girl and her fiance find themselves mixed up with a crooked nightclub owner, gangsters and murder."--- Written by frankfob2@yahoo.com Yes, this Beaumont is great as, well let us say, actor. He is just the same as the TV series... mild mannered, confident and wise. Don't get mislead by the opening scene where Hugh is drunk as a skunk. He comes to his senses and resumes his professional grade appearance.

Minor but appealing whodunit, very low budget but it?s a good story, short, sweet and to the point. Fine pacing. The cast does well. The lighting is quite good. Taut direction by Sam Newfield.
