A Blueprint for Murder* (1953): Slumming it in a B-movie thriller, Joseph Cotton, as Whitney Cameron, suspects his nearly perfect sister-in-law (Jean Peters) of murdering his niece with strychnine (which is affectedly pronounced STRICK-nin by every cast member). Cameron then plots to save his young nephew from the same assumed fate. With Gary Merrill (All About Eve) and a plucky Catherine McLeod as the husband-and-wife team who feed Cameron’s suspicions.

* At Amazon, the DVD of the movie is coupled with Man in the Attic (1954) starring Jack Palance, an uninspired remake of The Lodger (1944).
