The Painted Smile is a 1962 British thriller film directed by Lance Comfort and starring Liz Fraser, Kenneth Griffith, Peter Reynolds and Tony Wickert.[1][2] The film was known in the U.S. as Murder Can Be Deadly.[3]


Tom, a student, comes under suspicion of murder when he discovers a dead body in the flat of con artist Jo. After he touches the murder weapon, Jo convinces him it is in his interest to dispose of the body. The victim was Jo's partner in crime who has been killed by a Soho gang leader. However, the suspicions of the police are aroused and Tom becomes the obvious suspect.


Critical reception

The Radio Times wrote, "this dreadfully dull British B-movie makes its brief running time seem like an eternity";[4] while Cinedelica called the film "engaging and without a dull moment. Good stuff."[5]
