Who Killed Gail Preston? (1938) DVD-R

Be the first to review this product

Quick Overview

Starring Don Terry, Rita Hayworth, Robert Paige, Wyn Cahoon, Gene

Morgan, Marc Lawrence

Directed by Leon Barsha



Print: black/white

Runtime: 61 min.

Genre: mystery

Print Quality: B



Who Killed Gail Preston? gets off to a rousing start with a nocturnal

prison break which turns out to be the prelude for a nightclub musical

number, masterminded by bandleader Traynor (Robert Paige). Gail

Preston (Rita Hayworth), Traynor's vocalist, is much-despised by

practically everyone, so it comes as no surprise when she's bumped off

in the third reel. The most likely suspect is a weaselly hanger-on (Dwight

Frye) who removes himself from consideration when he takes a header

from a fourth-floor roof. This leaves such disreputable types as Marc

Lawrence, Arthur Loft and John Gallaudet for detective Connolly (Gene

Morgan) to choose from. Set almost entirely in Columbia's standard

nightclub set, Who Killed Gail Preston? is a remake of 1934's The Crime of

Helene Stanley
, which took place at a movie studio.
