Summary
  • Black widow: Nancy Ordway is an aspiring writer hoping to make it big in New York at the expense of everyone around her, including Broadway producer Peter Denver, who reluctantly lets her use his apartment to work during the day. And when Peter's wife, Iris, comes home from a trip to find Nancy dead in the bathroom, the assigned detective, Lt. Bruce, soon realizes this assumed suicide is more likely a murder. Everyone Ordway knew is suddenly suspect while a series of flashbacks reveal the plan she was weaving to climb the social ladder
  • Call Northside 777: The powerful true story of a reporter who corrects a miscarriage of justice. Includes original theatrical trailer
  • Dangerous crossing: Ruth Bowman is a new bride glowing with delight as she and her charming new husband, John, set sail on the SS Monrovia for a transatlantic honeymoon. But when John inexplicably vanishes, Ruth discovers that no one on the ship has any record of his existence. As she slips into hysteria, Ruth has to prove that her marriage and John's existence is not just her own delusion. The ship's physician, Dr. Paul Manning, might be the only person on board who can save Ruth from a terrifying predicament
  • Laura: A beautiful young woman named Laura is found murdered shortly before her wedding to a dashing young playboy. Stirred by her portrait and adoring descriptions by her admirers, the detective assigned to her case finds that he is strangely under Laura's spell
