Audience Reviews for Mystery Street

    Crime procedural fans will like this. Performances are excellent, especially Ricardo Montalban doing excellent work as a no-nonsense investigator, Jan Sterling the victim and Elsa Lanchester an unscrupulous landlady. Most of all, again, the cinematography of John Alton is reason enough to watch.

    MGM low-budget film noir Mystery Street is years ahead of its time and will be an unexpected delight to fans of TV shows like the CSI franchise and especially, "Bones." It's a procedural whodunit shot on location in Boston starring Ricardo Montalban as a police lieutenant who enlists the help of Harvard medical scientists to identify a body and solve the crime. The wrongly-accused- man theme will interest any film noir fan. Other reviewers highlight Elsa Lancaster, famous as the Bride of Frankenstein, who hilariously steals every scene she's in. However I'm more interested in the youthful Montalban, and for other viewers who know him as Mr. Roark from TV's Fantasy Island or Khan from star Trek II, this film is a surprising treat. Considering his ethnicity, Montalban's character is ahead of its time also. I don't consider this a negative criticism per se, however this film is not a "film noir," as advertised. It's a crime drama but not noir-ish at all. That being said, check out this engaging whodunit.

    Outstanding film from a Film Noir collection. Ricardo Montaiban plays an detective in trying to solve the murder of a toe dancer outside of Boston. A Man is arrested for her murder but is he the right man, after some time Ricardo Montaiban doesn't think so, he seeks the help of Harvard University to help find real killer. This is an excellent story line for the time period 4 1/2 stars

    Solid noir, Elsa Lanchester is a hoot as the seedy landlady.
