Geraldine Fitzgerald appears in this quota quickie early in her career.She works in the office of her lover Sebastian Shaw.He is a partner in a firm with his brother Cyril and Garry Marsh.They have a buyout proposed but Shaw won't agree and has a violent row with Cyril.They go to lunch desperately.Cyril is found shot dead at the foot of a staircase.Henry Kendall is the family solicitor and investigates as Shaw is accused of the murder of his brother.Many of the ingredients common to this type of film are present including a silly ads comic relief who is not a patch on Claude Hulbert.The identity of the murderer is revealed at a reconstruction of the crime.He is not difficult to guess because of a give away clue a few minutes earlier.This is is a very average quota quickie thriller.
