A bit clunky.
3 April 2012 | by (Co. Kerry Ireland) – See all my reviews

I intend to do a review of all the films on IMDb that I have seen that presently lack one, like many of these films this was shown at the Gothique film society in London, March-2012, review follows...

Ealing, the 2nd of the 95 M.Balcon produced Ealing films, this rather clunky tale of a death at a country house, possibly murder, is all too clearly based on a play, of interest to people trying to see all the 'Ealing' films, this is one of their weakest efforts.

Note version I saw ran 71m 28s, not stated 79m.

If anyone is wondering what was the 1st M.Balcon Ealing film, then it is the far superior THE GAUNT STRANGER (1938)
