| Murder in Times Square
This was considered a "B" picture when Columbia pictures released it in 1943 so it lacked the usual promotion. Edmond Lowe is at his best in this role as an actor turned detective. Although another critic on this web page made the comment that the murder weapon is not shown, it is clearly shown by the murderer when he prepares the snake poison for another victim and is very similar to the murder weapon utilized in "The Falcon Out West". I first saw this movie while growing up in San Diego on television and consider it to be as good as the "Thin Man" movies, etc. Rated "G" for all ages. The plot is that Edmond Lowe is a struggling stage actor/writer in New York City and finally hits it big on Broadway with a play he wrote. His good luck turns bad when he refuses to join a club ran by an old lady. Imediately after wards he becomes a prime suspect for the murders of snake bite victims because the plot of his play is very similar. He must become a detective in order to clear himself and the film does a great job of placing Edmond Lowe at his best acting role. The only regret is that he did not continue making similar movies in the golden years of the 1940's.
