Footsteps in the Dark (1941)

Footsteps in the Dark (1941), directed by Lloyd Bacon.

Blue-blood financier Errol Flynn has a secret life as a mystery writer. He gets tangled up in a real murder case.

It's too light and fluffy to be really enjoyable. Flynn had great comic talent and could have had a career apart from his action pictures, but needed better scripts.

Many familiar Warner faces: Brenda Marshall, Alan Hale, Ralph Bellamy, William Frawley.

Warner Archive title, available for rent from ClassicFlix.
