Almost incomprehensible thriller
30 August 2015 | by (london) – See all my reviews

The opening credits of this film state that it has "An all star cast"'However what this actually means is the opposite.The best known actor is George Zucco,who only appears briefly.The rest are actors such as I for Bernard and Elliott Markham who are basically character actors. As has been mentioned in the other review this is rather a strange film,and I have to say that I struggled to follow the plot,though basically it is about missing jewels and murder.The problem is that the film fast forwards from 1914 to 1933.It becomes rather problematic to what has happened before with what has happened in the past.The murderer is unmasked but meets quick justice.In this instance brevity is a virtue.
