Dressed to Kill is a 1928 silent film drama produced and distributed by Fox Film Corporation and starring Mary Astor and Edmund Lowe. Astor was "on loan" from Warner Bros. for the film. The New York Times review stated - "Edmund Lowe is capital as the well-tailored Barry. Mr. Barry likes a good round of golf on the day following a fruitful burglary. Mary Astor is charming as Jean and R. O. Pennell makes the most of the "Professor's" rôle.".

Samuel L. Rothafel selected the film for the feature for the first anniversary of the New York City Roxy Theatre.


The gang of a mob boss grow suspicious of his new girlfriend. She's a beautiful young girl and they don't believe she would actually associate with the mob and wonder if she's really a police "plant". The mobsters dress nattily to not appear "out of place" in the ritzy neighborhoods prior to a heist.
