Good Ladd, Superfluous Lake, Great Bendix
The trailer for The Blue Dahlia advertised the film as Ladd, Lake, and Bendix. Not a mention about Raymond Chandler, maybe he wanted it that way.

The Blue Dahlia has mystery writer Raymond Chandler writing an original screenplay and Chandler delivers a good movie for the most part. Nice suspenseful noir film, but it could have been better.

The main weakness in the plot is Veronica Lake. Chandler couldn’t stand her and called her Moronica Lake as a reflection of her acting ability. In fairness it’s a poorly defined role and her meeting with Alan Ladd in this film is too too coincidental. I guess you had to give the star a love interest, but the idea that Ladd is hunting for the killer of his wife and just happens to come upon the wife of his number one suspect is way too unreal.

The number one suspect of the killing is Howard DaSilva. If I had to name the best performance in this film it would have to be DaSilva. He’s the dapper, elegant owner of a Hollywood nightclub, but he exudes a menace that chills you. His best scene in the film is paying off blackmailer Will Wright. He pays him, THIS TIME. Wright gets the message he’d better not come back for more.

I believe it was Raymond Chandler who also said that Alan Ladd was a small boy’s idea of a tough guy. That is unfair to Ladd who delivers a more than competent performance here as the returning war veteran who’s on the hunt for his wife’s killer while being suspected of the crime itself.

Check out Alan Ladd’s scene at the farm with DaSilva’s thugs. Very similar in the way they end up to how Bogart handled the baddies in The Big Sleep.

Bill Bendix gets in the top billing with stars Ladd and Lake because he’s also a radio star because of the Life of Riley Show. Bendix and Hugh Beaumont are Ladd’s wartime buddies and Bendix never was bad in any film he did. He shows signs of post traumatic stress at a time when that diagnosis had not been invented.

A bit too contrived, but a nice film noir.

noir in blue
I’ve recently been making an effort to watch a bunch of old movies that I’ve never seen before, with an emphasis on movies nominated for Academy Awards. One of these is “The Blue Dahlia”. Although obviously a film noir, the movie also addresses wartime injuries and PTSD (even though that name didn’t exist in the 1940s). Alan Ladd is great as a man accused of murdering his unfaithful wife. And of course there’s Veronica Lake as the wife of a nightclub owner. Was any moviegoing boy in the 1940s not fantasizing about her?

As with many of these movies, there’s a couple of surprises along the way, and then the big reveal at the end. I would’ve never guessed what it was going to turn out to be. But I had no doubt that it was going to be one fine movie, and it is just that. I recommend it.

It’s too bad that Veronica Lake’s career ended so abruptly. I bet that she could’ve gone on to have a versatile career.
