A Shriek in the Night (1933)

An American crime mystery directed by Albert Ray, starring Ginger Rogers and Lyle Talbot.
A rich man dies by falling from his balcony and rival news reporters try to figure out who killed him.
SO BORING! The simple plot and barely identifiable characters made watching this a chore. Even though the actors were moving quickly onscreen and the duration was only an hour, the slow pacing made the film plod and drag unbearably. The audio was low quality and I noticed some sloppy editing, mostly in the video. The only positive aspects were the good looking female lead (no female anatomy points though) and the black maid refusing to enter the morgue. Overall, it was just so boring and so pointless. I rate this bad. Don't watch it.
