The Blue Gardenia

Norah Larkin (Baxter) is a working girl who wakes up a murderess after passing out in the apartment of brutish playboy Harry Prebble (Burr). Branded "The Blue Gardenia" by a sensational columnist (Conte), Norah dodges dragnets, informants and the cruel hand of fate as she struggles to conceal her involvement with Prebble, and to remember the details of her ill-fated night. As her hopes for justice fade, she decides to gamble her future on the journalist who transformed her into such a notorious figure.

This film is a witness to the societal attacks a woman must deal with when a mistake is made. Anne Baxter is outstanding. ~Mike
