The Dark Corner is a 1946 American crime film noir directed by Henry Hathaway and starring Lucille Ball, Clifton Webb, William Bendix and Mark Stevens. The film was not a commercial success but has since been described as a „Grade A example of film noir.”

Private investigator Bradford Galt has moved from San Francisco to New York to escape a troubled past. He blames his former partner Tony Jardine for his problems. Complicating matters, he is hounded by New York police lieutenant Frank Reeves and pursued by a thug in a white suit. The thug is forced to admit that he has been hired by Jardine.

Galt suspects that Jardine is trying to frame him for a murder, but Jardine is part of a wider-ranging conspiracy involving wealthy art gallery owner Hardy Cathcart. With the help of his sharp-witted secretary Kathleen, Galt is able to overcome all of these obstacles and clear himself.
