I Take This Corpse

I Married A Dead Man is sweet
A husband and wife never meet
He's stiff when they "wed"
That's some wedding bed
Another good Woolrich noir treat

With Stanwyck in film of the book
No Man of Her Own's worth a look
But filmmakers missed
with weak final twist
It cuts the best Woolrich plot hook

No Man of Her Own (Mitchell Leisen, 1950) For a brief
comparison of the book and film versions, go here.
