Trivia

The failure of the original copyright holder to renew the film's copyright resulted in it falling into public domain, meaning that virtually anyone could duplicate and sell a VHS/DVD copy of the film. Therefore, many of the versions of this film available on the market are either severely (and usually badly) edited and/or of extremely poor quality, having been duped from second- or third-generation (or more) copies of the film.

Basil Rathbone is not as he appears to be much to dismay of Ann Harding
20 June 1999 | by (Franklin, VA) – See all my reviews

Typical Agatha Christie story where someone is not at all as he appears. Story consists of a young woman (Harding) who wins the lottery. Basil Rathbone poses as someone wanting a room to let and sweeps Harding off her feet. They rush off to Paris where they quickly marry and Harding unceremoniously dumps her old fiancee. The newlyweds settle in their new home where we watch as Rathbone starts going looney tunes. We learn he is the serial killer known as "Fletcher." The film's suspense builds to a shocking climax where Harding tries to save her life by claiming she too is a murderer. Not to be missed.
