84 minutes · 1949
Screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz recycles several themes and techniques from his script for Citizen Kane in this oddball 1949 melodrama about a singer (Maureen O'Hara) who confesses to the killing of her double-dealing protegee (Gloria Grahame). But Kane II it isn't; the flashbacks here—as Melvyn Douglas leads the inquiry—snarl up into a turgid mess. Nicholas Ray directed it, though his touch is apparent only in the handling of the unstable Grahame character; otherwise, it's probably his stodgiest, driest piece of work. (Mankiewicz's brother Joseph later turned a similar story into All About Eve.) With Victor Jory.
