  • I Love Trouble

    1947. USA. Directed by S. Sylvan Simon. Screenplay by Roy Huggins. With Franchot Tone, Janet Blair, Janis Carter. This is a newly restored print of this seldom-seen gem, an early example of genre self-consciousness written by the prolific Roy Huggins. Franchot Tone stars as the hapless private detective Stuart Bailey (a character revived by Huggins for his 77 Sunset Strip television series), who spends much of the movie being knocked out, literally or figuratively, by a stunning series of late 1940s bombshells: Janet Blair, Janis Carter and Adele Jergens. 93 min.
