Great fun as a Post WWI mystery: good acting, script and period commentary
The basic review is spot on. This is a fun movie. Neither deep nor meaningful, but it is a good romp in a Post WWI England. Enjoyed it with my family. Three generations of my family stuck with it until the end, and all enjoyed it. The cinematography, with fog and lighting adds nicely to the suspense. It is a great look, though typically romanticized or glossy, at the morays and social structure of post WWI British society. Although totally predictable in plot, the dialog and characters made for a fun hour plus at the movies. Not a must in any DVD library, but when on sale, a worthwhile addition as the price of a single ticket.
