What about the 1960 Richard Carlson movie "Tormented".The record playing on the phonograph was a batwing 78 bearing the label "MB".The singer was "Vi Mason" who was played by Juli Redding who was Richard Carlson's girlfriend whom he murdered just so he could marry some rich gal.I saw it when it came out.It came out years later on a $5.00 DVD set.
