Why, they might even say that you're a liar.

The Window (1949) - 8/10.
I would never have guessed that 'The Boy Who Cried Wolf' would have made for such a great little noir. Young boy discovers a murderer, but no one believes him because of the previous lies he's told. It feels like one of those live-action Disney movies, what with the peppiness of the young boy (who was on loan from Disney), but mixing that lightness with a fair amount of dark. What follows is a case of the villains not knowing when they've already won.
