The Man Who Cheated Himself (1950)

Four years before Father Knows Best, Jane Wyatt knew how to use a gun. In this flick, she offs her husband. Her cop boyfriend, Lee J. Cobb, sees the whole thing.  He’s assigned to the case. He doesn’t really put a whole into it. His assistant, who also happens to be his inexperienced brother, turns out to be a go getter. Not a great movie, but not so bad that it shouldn’t be seen.

The film was co-written by Philip MacDonald.  He created the book series character Anthony Ruthven Gethryn in 1924. He stopped writing the character in 1938. But…he revived him in 1959 for his most famous book, “The List Of Adrian Messenger.”

I'm a big fan of vintage books,movies,TV shows and music. I encourage everyone to patronize your local used book/record store and pick up some of the good stuff. My posts are capsule reviews of some favorites that you may want to investigate. The albums posted aren't really reviews but items from my collection that are still available. I try and point out highlights of each one and let the music speak for itself. Thanks to all for checking out the blog.
