Episode 297: Decoy (1946)

Guest Co-Hosts: Maitland McDonagh, Christa Faust

Difficult to find on home video for many years, Jack Bernhard's Decoy (1946) stands as a highly off-beat film noir in which Margot Shelby (Jean Gillie) plays the consummate femme fatale with designs on the $400,000 her lover, Frankie (Robert Armstrong), has hidden. She needs to break him out of jail in order to get her hands on the money and does so by allowing him to be executed, only to bring him back from the dead...

Writers Christa Faust and Maitland McDonagh join Mike to discuss this usual film.
