The limited series I Am the Night resurrects a legendary murder still unsolved more than 70 years after it happened. For decades after Elizabeth Short (‘The Black Dahlia’) was tortured, murdered, and mutilated, her case was used to frighten many a young female whose ambitions included show business. In the South, her case captured just as much attention as it did in the rest of the country. This series sets itself apart from other film and TV coverage of the case, though. The book it’s based on is written by someone with personal ties to a suspect.
