Did You Know?


This film is one of over 200 titles in the list of independent feature films made available for television presentation by Advance Television Pictures announced in Motion Picture Herald 4 April 1942. At this time, television broadcasting was in its infancy, almost totally curtailed by the advent of World War II, and would not continue to develop until 1945-1946. Because of poor documentation (feature films were often not identified by title in conventional sources) no record has yet been found of its initial television broadcast. See more »

Beautifully shot, well done
12 June 2005 | by See all my reviews

The movie has its creaking moments, as all murder mysteries from the early thirties do, but it's well shot and beautifully composed. Verna/Vera is a wonderful villainess, and I have at times during the film been transfixed by her ghostly and ghastly whiteness against the black backgrounds as she postures and poses, prances and plots.

The surrounding cast, especially the good son who must fight against her slander of the "family honour," do well also. There is an eccentric old lord who "wheezes," for instance, with great hilarity, as he is followed about by his valet.

Murder mysteries, if they are your genre, have three distinct phases. There is the set-up, which in this film is quite long and complicated. This film makes you think about the back story on your own, before throwing the film onto a ship where the murder occurs. The second phase transpires as the murder is about to take place and as it takes place, and then the final third details the solving of the murder.

I recommend this old film.
