A fun mystery that will keep you guessing
9 September 2012 | by (Plano, Texas) – See all my reviews

THE BEDROOM WINDOW (1924) was a very fun Paramount mystery from William de Mille. Ricardo Cortez is irate that May McAvoy's father has forbid him to see her again. He storms over to her house and demands to see the father. Unfortunately, the father has just been murdered, and Cortez picks up the murder weapon, a gun. There is no other exit from the room, except for an open window. There is a sheer drop from the window, and it is several stories high, so there is no way that the murderer could have escaped that way. The police come and immediately haul Cortez into jail.

Luckily, McAvoy's aunt (in-law) Ethel Wales is a mystery writer, who's pen name is "Rufus Rome". She has writer's block, and solving a real mystery is just what she needs. She has to untangle two love triangles, embezzled money, and even meets an attractive older man who is a suspect and a mystery fan. This mystery film is really well done, because there are several times that the audience will think that they have it figured out, and there is no squeaky-clean character that is revealed as the murderer at the end. Ethel Wales is a hoot as the amateur detective.

Ignore the late F Gwynplaine MacIntyre's review on the IMDb for this film. He obviously didn't see the movie and tried to judge it from contemporary reviews, because he gets several plot points wrong in his review.
