The Blue Dahlia

Alan Ladd and Veronica Lake star in The Blue Dahlia, a 1946 film noir. William Bendix, Hugh Beaumont and Howard da Silva are in this, too. Raymond Chandler is the writer and George Marshall directs.

Youtube has it online in pieces. Part 1:

part 2, part 3, part 4, part 5, part 6, part 7, part 8, part 9, part 10

Variety seems to like it, saying that the "Story gets off to a slow start, but settles to an even pace that never lets down in interest." Time Out says it's "A fine hardboiled thriller". The New York Times calls it "a honey of a rough-'em-up romance" and "a brisk, exciting show."
