This is a really good film with a young and beautiful Lucille Ball giving, probably, her best dramatic performance. For those of you who only know Lucy from TV this movie will come as a big surprise. It is taut and gripping and a fine example of film noir, with an excellent supporting performance by Clifton Webb. I highly recommend this film.

I first saw this years ago on The Women's Television Network, every Sunday afternoon they used to air excellent old movies that starred incredible leading ladies, I think they called it Leading Ladies. Anyway, this is a great movies starring Lucille Ball as a PI's secretary and she ends up helping him prove he's not guilty of murder and, of course, falling for him.

Well before Lucy was stereotyped as a Comedienne of extraordinary depth , she was an actress first. Here she is in a
dramatic role as the secretary/angel of a tough guy private detective , who finds himself in "The Dark Corner" of a frame up.
With William Bendix , classic as a hoodlum , and Clifton Webb as the usual scheming bad guy. It is interesting to see Lucy
doing something other than delivering punch lines. Good movie with great cast.

Bought this movie on speculation as I had never seen Lucile Ball in a sensible role. Excellent story and always good to see Clifton Webb and William Bendix.

Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation presents "THE DARK CORNER" (9 April 1946) (99 min/B&W) (Fully Restored/Dolby Digitally Remastered) -- Lucille Ball plays the secretary to private investigator Bradford Galt (Stevens) --- Having already done time for manslaughter, Galt's looking for a fresh start --- But before long he's being trailed by a mysterious white-suited thug (Bendix) and sucked into a nightmarish frame-up while Kathleen (Ball) looks on helpless --- With its wheels-within-wheels plot it's a film that grows increasingly compelling and Stevens and Ball generate some tension of their own,

The Dark Corner is a polished gem of a film noir.

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By "scotsladdie" on Jan. 18 2000
Format: VHS Tape
A gripping, intricate film noir about a detective, already framed once, who may go up the river yet again-this time for the murder of his ex-partner, the guy who framed him for the first time. Loyal secretary Ball helps to extricate him from this tangled web. Director Henry Hathaway made THE DARK CORNER in conventional Hollywood fashion, an excellent thriller about a private eye (Stevens) confronting the New York art world as represented by Clifton Webb and his thuggish aide, William Bendix. Resemblances may be found to the amiguities of LAURA, and under the title we noted the presence of STREET SCENE, an orchestral piece to be repeated in the other Fox thrillers of the period.

Anyone who knows Lucy's body of work knows that she is the Queen of Comedy. But, to see her in "The Dark Corner." was an unexpected surprise. Her performance in this film was outstanding.
