Storyline

Tony Blair, a producer of Broadway plays, is murdered on a California-bound passenger liner, and a series of events leads to an assumption that Claire Norvelle has committed the killing. Despite the fact that Blair was an obnoxious character, murder is murder and Barbara is accused of the crime. Complications arise when another murder occurs. The startling solution clears Barbara and provides a surprising explanation of the two murders. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Of Bad Moviemaking
1 October 2003 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Awful second feature about a shipboard murder following a crooked poker game fails to maintain any suspense or indeed, any interest at all. There is some experimentation with dubbing to deal with moving shots -- dubbing in which the mouths don't match words spoken. Harry Myers, best known for his role as the rich drunk in Chaplin's LIMELIGHT, plays the drunk here too, although nowhere near as amusingly.
