The Verdict (1946)
A must see for those who love a mystery
Although there have been thousands of murder mysteries in hard cover and paper back, very few have translated to the movies well. Rarely is an audience ever surprised.
In The Verdict, Sydney Greenstreet as Supt. George Edward Grodman and Peter Lorre as Victor Emmric team up in what might be billed as the best whodunnit ever produced for the screen.
Grodman is summarily dismissed from his Scotland Yard position. After his forced retirement a neighbor is murdered and he and his eccentric friend Emmric try to solve the crime.
Why this is not among the favorites of every fan of this genre is a mystery in itself.
