Trivia

This film is one of over 200 titles in the list of independent feature films made available for television presentation by Advance Television Pictures announced in Motion Picture Herald 4 April 1942. At this time, television broadcasting was in its infancy, almost totally curtailed by the advent of World War II, and would not continue to develop until 1945-1946. Because of poor documentation (feature films were often not identified by title in conventional sources) no record has yet been found of its initial television broadcast. Retitled "Murder on the High Seas" in 1949, its initial telecast in Los Angeles took place Monday 20 November 1950 on KLAC (Channel 13). See more »

It's hard to believe that this hard-hearted woman wants Dick!
16 June 2019 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

Because "Love Bound" is a murder mystery, you realize very, very early into the movie who the victim will be. A much-hated woman who makes a fortune blackmailing innocent men in court is about to go on a cruise...and she receives a note threatening her life. Additionally, Dick, the son of the recently ruined man who was sued by her is also on the boat....and he's determined to get justice. Surprisingly, however, despite all the cliches and usual formula, she does NOT get killed. So what gives? Who's gonna die in this one?

This is a good movie because it avoided predictability and cliches. But it also does something that you'll either love or hate...the film gets you to believe that a professional blackmailer actually CAN do the right thing and she actually falls in love with her pursuer, Dick! Hard to believe she could fall for Dick, but also it opens up some interesting possibilities and twists. Well worth seeing.
