Island in the Sky

Island in the Sky with Gloria Stuart and Michael Whalen.  Assistant District Attorney Michael Fraser (Michael Whalen) chooses the romantic rooftop nightclub "Island in the Sky" to propose to his secretary, Julie Hayes (Gloria Stuart).  Their wedding plans must be delayed, however, when a murder takes place nearby and the victim's son is the obvious suspect. Although the son is convicted, Julie believes he is innocent and works to clear his name and find the real killer.

This is a murder mystery with lots of laughs and lots of familiar faces.  Gloria Stuart was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her role as the older version of Rose in Titanic.  The nightclub owner is played by Leon Ames, whom I know best as The Colonel, Mr. Ed's neighbor.  The DA's policeman sidekick is played by Paul Hurst, who was the Yankee deserter that Scarlett shot in Gone With the Wind.
