The slovenly but sly Chicago lawyer of Craig Rice's comedy-mysteries came to the big screen in these entries. Malone (Pat O'Brien) and his old cronies Jake and Helene Justus (George Murphy, Carole Landis) have their hands full when a stage magician (George Zucco) disappears for keeps in "Having Wonderful Crime" (1945). Lenore Aubert, Gloria Holden co-star. When Malone (James Whitmore) chases a fee-ducking client (Douglas Fowley) onto a train─and the chiseler turns up dead─he must turn to feisty rustic widow Hattie O'Malley (Marjorie Main) to help bail him out. "Mrs. O'Malley and Mr. Malone" (1950) also stars Ann Dvorak, Dorothy Malone, Phyllis Kirk. 139 min. total. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono.
