The first 1 minute is the best!
10 June 2018 | by gridoon2020See all my reviews

"Murder In Greenwich Village" has an amazing start, with a half-undressed Fay Wray acrobatically jumping from one building to another! The rest of the movie, however, is a routine, forgettable, and grade-B programmer. Wray is as gorgeous as ever; Marc Lawrence is very convincing as a hard-boiled gangster. ** out of 4.
