1927 Crime/Comedy Film
"There are other excellent performances in the picture, and Frank Urson's direction is, for the most part, admirable."--Life Magazine
"It's actually a fairly unique mixture of comedy and drama, which -- aside from specialty items like Charlie Chaplin's The Kid -- was little seen at the time."--Combustible Celluloid

This film was based on the true crime stories of Beulah Annan and Belva Gaertner as both of them murdered their lovers around 1924. Beulah, who is the main muse for this film, killed the man she was seeing with the excuse he "tried to make love" to her and tried to blame it on her husband by involving him in it.
The plot was adapted to stage in 1975 with music and lyrics by John Kander and Fred Ebb. It was a critical and commercial success and was made into a musical film in 2002, starring Renée Zellweger as Roxie, Catherine Zeta-Jones as fellow murderess Velma Kelly, Richard Gere as Billy Flynn, Queen Latifah as Mama Morton, and John C. Reilly as Amos.
