Sunset Murder Case is a 1938 English-language Action Crime film written by Harold Joyce, Paul Franklin And, Arthur Hoerl and Lawrence Meade. The movie is directed by Louis J. Gasnier and produced by Sam Coslow and George A. Hirliman. First of all this film was produced and distributed in 1938, and is not a 1941 production. The exhibitors and various censor boards objected to the original title, The Sunset Strip Case (because of the double meaning that implied a strip on Sunset rather than the name of the street, which is exactly what the producer had in mind when he hired fan-dancer Sally Rand, the hit of the Chicago Exposition and the later Texas Centennial), and Boston promptly banned the film, as Boston was often subject to do with far less reason than they had with this film. The film was tied up in law suits across the country brought against the various blue-nose boards who also blocked its showing, and all this was going on during the collapse of Grand National with GN president E. W. Hammons being hauled to court by exhibitors and creditors, including the production unit headed by this film's producer George A. Hirliman. The latter produced it for Grand National distribution, but Grand National had no distribution left when Hirliman finally got it cleared for showing in New York in 1941 under the title of The Sunset Murder Case..and it was distribued through indie exchanges in 1941 as Grand National had long folded its tent. It still carried the Grand National logo, which evidently has fooled the source that keeps calling this a 1941 production, and showing it as being distributed by an entity that no longer existed. The cast order shown on the 1941 prints is no way reflective of the cast order shown on original release. Excuse the use of Plot Summary to explain why this is not a 1941 film, but that is beginning to appear to be the only way to get this film into its proper decade. The plot summary, albeit skimpy,already on site will suffice for the plot. Be advised that Sally Rand was slower with her fans and showed flesh in a later-Soundies short film than she does here. This one ran into trouble in 1938 because of her name, and not what she actually showed, although she showed than was custom in 1938..or 1948 or 1958 for that matter. Written by Les Adams. Sunset murder case stars Sally Rand in the title role along with an ensemble cast including Esther Muir, Henry King, Lona Andre, Vince Barnett, Kathryn Kane and Dennis Moore. The music was composed by Hugo Riesenfeld. Cinematography was done by Mack Stengler and editing by Martin G. Cohn. It was released on 11th November 1938. Distribution rights for the film were acquired by Grand National Pictures.
