Thanks to the “heads up” from Bill S. in the below comment section. I had always thought that the 1950 classic film “Sunset Boulevard” reference to the Dahlia murder was the first on the Big Screen, but NOT SO. As Bill S. points out, here is a much earlier reference in the 1947 film, “Heartaches” released just five months after the murder.

Film released June 1947 just five months after Elizabeth Short, “Black Dahlia” Murder.
