creaky quota quickie
5 May 2009 | by (london) – See all my reviews

This is an archetypal quota quickie.It was made by that doyen of quota quickies.Julius Hagen at Twickenham Studios for release by Universal.It is a murder mystery featuring Austin Trevor as a French detective who sounds suspiciously like Hercule Poirot.It has that favourite device of a murdered corpse found in a locked room.The camera work is so static it could have been made in 1905 let alone 1935.Scenes are photographed in one of two ways.Firstly all the actors are assembled on the set so that when their lines come up they don't have to move.The alternate way is to have the scene started off by 2 actors and then when any other actors have to say a line they walk into the scene.There are no closeups and virtually no cuts within scenes.If you shut your eyes you will miss nothing.Basically this is for fans of quota quickies or whodunits.
