Roses are Red (1947) Don Castle





Director:

 James Tinling

Writer:

 Irving Elman

Stars:

 Don CastlePeggy KnudsenPatricia Knight


Good guy is a DA, bad guy is an ex-con, they happen to look alike. The bad guy try's to impersonate the good guy, but the good guy impersonates the bad guy. The idea is old but the movie is fun, with Don Castle as the good and bad guy. The script is pretty good, telling some truths like the mob controlling the politicians, they all have their price you know. An interesting cast, Don Castle in the lead never made it big,  he died from a drug overdose at the age of 47. Peggy Knudsen, knockout curvaceous screen siren, plays a reporter and love interest to the DA. Patricia Knight, another knockout, only did a few movies. While watching look for Jeff Chandler and James Arness in small supporting roles.★★★
