@celticeagle Yes, the obsession with a painting is a recurring theme in cinema. I am thinking of (although not a detective story) 'The Portrait of Jenny' and 'The Picture of Dorian Grey.' I haven't watched 'The Black Dahlia' but have seen 'The Blue Dahlia.'

@sugartoes I haven't watched the Joe Kenda show. I watch the Murdoch detective mystery show and Miss Fisher on tv. If you like a detective mystery that has a compelling story and twists, then you'll like the film noir 'Laura.' It's an old classic from 1944, and won an Oscar.

@Micmac I think the movie Red Dragon (2002) was based on that novel with the character, cannibal Dr. Hannibal Lecter. Yes, that was a bizarre horror movie with a disturbed character called The Tooth Fairy who is obsessed with a dragon painting- very creepy.
