Five Star Final

The Absence of Malice of 1931, with Edward G. Robinson as the editor of a sleazy tabloid looking into a 20-year-old murder case and causing a suicide. Mervyn LeRoy directed, doing a lot better with the newspaper chatter than with the long stretches of melodrama; nonetheless, the film was nominated for an Academy Award. With H.B. Warner, Aline MacMahon, and Boris Karloff, excellent in a character part before his typing in horror films. 89 min.
