Decoy (1946) as Nurse
Grim ^Ifilm noir^R stars British actress Gillie as one of the most vicious, heartless and cruel women ever seen in an American film. The story opens as a wounded doctor, Rudley, enters the apartment of Gillie, the beautiful but ruthless member of a gang of thieves. Gunshots are heard, and soon police sergeant Leonard arrives to find Rudley dead and Gillie dying. Gillie tells her sordid tale to the cop before she dies. In flashback we learn that Gillie fell in with gangster Armstrong who had stolen $400,000 in a robbery in which he had killed a cop. Captured and sentenced to die in the gas chamber, Armstrong tells his gang that he has hidden the dough, and, with Gillie's help, he will return to life after the state has executed him by taking an antidote to the cyanide gas, an antidote developed by Rudley. The plan works like a charm, and Armstrong is brought back long enough to give Gillie half the map before he is shot by rival gang member Norris after the latter grabs the other half of the map. Gillie and Norris force Rudley to help them find the treasure. En route, Gillie fakes a flat tire, and, when Norris gets out to fix it, she runs back and forth over him a few times to make sure he is dead. She then makes the doctor dig up the box. When Gillie opens the treasure chest, she is consumed with hysterical madness and cannot stop laughing. She grabs her gun and shoots Rudley, then runs back to her apartment, only to be tracked down by the wounded doctor. At film's end, she reveals to the cops that the box contained only a dollar bill and a note from Armstrong saying that he knew they would double-cross him. With that, Gillie laughs and dies. She is superb. Well worth seeing.

10.
A WAVE, a WAC and a Marine (1944) as Eileen Manners
Henny (Henny Youngman), talent scout for the Margaret Ames (Sally Eilers) Film Agency in Hollywood, mistakes Judy (Anne Gillis) and Marian (Elyse Knox), the understudies, for Eileen (Marjorie Woodworth) and Betty (Ramsay Ames), the real stars of a Broadway show and signs them up for movies. Margaret, furious with Henny for the blunder, fires him---but only temporarily. Another agent, Marty Allen (Richard Lane), once married to and still in love with Margaret, signs Betty and Eileen. Henny arrives with Judy and Marian, and the nightclub manager asks Henny to emcee the show. Though he is not sure himself what they can do, Henny introduces the girls and they make a hit in a dramatic sketch. (Simmer down, it's just a Monogram movie, and their nightclub attendees can react anyway director Phil Karlstein/Karlson wants them to.) Big-time movie producer R. J. (Alan Dinehart) signs them to a film contract. So, what does this have to do with the title, "A WAVE, a WAC and a Marine"? Because Judy joins the WAVES, Marian the WACS and Marty the Marines and all have two weeks before induction, and that is more than long enough to shoot a Monogram musical-within-a-Monogram musical and have a few days to spare.
