I saw "House of Strangers" (1949) with Richard Conte, Edward G. Robinson & the delicious Susan Hayward on Movies channel the other night.

If you like Susan Hayward, look for the one in my link below. It about the best of her movies that I've yet seen. Co-starring is Bill Williams, who in real life was married to Barbara Hale (TV "Perry Mason"'s secretary, "Della Street").

Watched Hayward in another one a few nights ago called "The Hairy Ape" which featured co-star William Bendix. Unfortunately, it fell completely apart about 1/2 way through. Alan Napier (later TV "Batman"'s butler, "Alfred") also had a cameo in that one. It was made in 1945, so Hayward was only 28 at the time, but looked much younger.

Bendix, who most people my age remember as "Chester A. Riley" from the sitcom "Life of Riley", had actually had a previous career playing "heavies" opposite (among others) Alan Ladd. Check him out in "The Glass Key" (1942) as psychopathic "Jeff" or as brain-injured "Buzz Wanchek" in "The Blue Dahlia" (1946) (which, in addition to Ladd and Veronica Lake) also features Hugh Beaumont (later "Ward Cleaver" on TV's "Leave it to Beaver". Both those are excellent flicks.

"Deadline at Dawn" (1946):

BTW: "The Blue Dahlia " was written by Raymond Chandler ("The Big Sleep", "The Long Goodbye") and "The Glass Key" by Dashiell Hammett ("The Maltese Falcon", "The Thin Man").

Here's another good one. I saw part of this years ago and had forgotten about it. Good cast, including Richard Basehart, Jack Webb, Scott Brady, Whit Bissell, Frank Cady, Roy Roberts and John Dehner.

Watched it free on Amazon tonight.

"He Walked by Night" (1948):
