"Lured" (1947)

Before she became the iconic clown of TV, Lucille Ball made many solid pictures in the '40s where you can witness her dramatic acting chops, among them this nifty little film noir. A mad strangler is loose in London preying on young women thru the personal columns, and Scotland Yard recruits taxi dancer Lucy as bate to catch the culprit. Suave George Sanders shows up as the male interest. Smart direction by Douglas Sirk, with some nice comic touches thrown in.
