The Crime of Helen Stanley (1934)


This third entry in Columbia’s “Inspector Trent” series is cleverly (and economically) set in a movie studio. A malevolent leading lady is murdered while filming a scene, whereupon the nervous studio head calls in Inspector Trent. Since everybody on the lot despised the victim, there’s a surplus of suspects.

Director: D. Ross Lederman.
Writers: Charles R. Condon (story), Harold Shumate (screenplay).
Stars: Ralph Bellamy, Shirley Grey, Gail Patrick, Kane Richmond, Bradley Page, Phillip Trent, Arthur Rankin, Lucien Prival, Ward Bond, Helen Eby-Rock.
