Yawn - Lord Peter Wimsey in Action
25 April 2004 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

In what is probably one of the earliest film adaptations of a Lord Peter Wimsey novel we have the great detective in action on a night time train. You'll forgive the lack of detail as to the plot, but the film is so dull that other than bodies ending up in baskets or trunks, I've drawn a blank as to what actually occurred.

This is not a particularly good film and is so bland that unless I had noticed that this was based on a Wimsey book I would scarcely have suspected it.Obviously this film did little to popularize the detective, and happily it didn't kill his career either.

I can suggest you recommend this film since this is not a time killer but a time waster.
