A straightforward murder mystery told well. Allowing for differences in acting methods since then and the technical capabilities of film just about as good as any supporting feature made in the 1930s. One or two technical glitches on the print I've seen do not detract from enjoyment of the story which is your classic Sunday Afternoon Old Film.
Lots of local colour and scenes of ordinary life in a village for the period makes for interesting viewing. There are enough Red Herrings to keep the plot ticking over.
For those who like trivia: Michael Bilton (Old Ned in To the Manor Born) is to be seen fleetingly in the garden fête scene as a very young man sporting a straw boater.
