Midnight (1934)Jury foreman Edward Weldon's questioning leads to the death sentence for Ethel Saxon. His daughter Stella claims to have killed her lover, the gangster Gar Boni, just as Saxon was to sit in the electric chair. This pre-classical era noir was re-released in the 40s as "Call it Murder" to cash in on Humphrey Bogart's subsequent stardom, putting his name above the title of the movie, even though he was eighth in the cast credits when the movie was originally released and only played a part role.
