3 things about Mitchell Leisen’s MURDER AT THE VANITIES

Murder at the Vanities [1934]

1. All-too-brief ode to marijuana that ends with blood dripping onto the bare shoulders of a chorus girl.
2. Arpeggio, arpeggio, arpeggio! Ellington hams it up at the piano.
3. “Cocktails for Two” is a celebration of the end of Prohibition.
