They Won't Forget ★★★½ 1937

When a young girl is murdered in a southern town, personal interests take precedence over justice. Turner is excellent in her first billed role, as are the other actors. Superb script, and expert direction by LeRoy pulls it all together. Based on Ward Greene's “Death in the Deep South.” 95m/B VHS . Claude Rains, Otto Kruger, Lana Turner, Allyn Joslyn, Elisha Cook Jr., Edward Norris; D: Mervyn LeRoy; W: Robert Rossen, Aben Kandel.
