The Butler Doesn't Do It
1 March 2009 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

"Margaret Wilson (Frances Redd) is the daughter of a well-respected small town family, who is courted by local man Buster Barnett (Edward Brandon) and a traveling carnival mentalist, Prince Alihabad (Laurence Criner). When Margaret's father turns up dead after showing his oil well deed to his daughter's suitors, she decides to track down her father's killer herself (by hiring) a private investigator and his bumbling assistant," according to the DVD sleeve's synopsis. "Midnight Shadow" is an embarrassingly poor, segregated production.
