Storyline

Murder mystery with a nurse (Lee Patrick) moving into a mansion after an apparent suicide to care for the old mother. The mother is kind of spooky, but so is the butler, and the girlfriend, and the doctor, and... you get the point. After the insurance policy is found, the plot becomes more interesting.

Average whodunit
26 June 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A nurse goes to a mansion to care for an elderly woman who has had a breakdown after finding the body of her nephew – was it an accident? Suicide? Or murder? Who cares? Suspicious characters abound - the butler, the maid, the lawyer, the young woman who is lurking about... Although I'm a fan of 30s and 40s mysteries, this one was just not very entertaining. Lee Patrick and Regis Toomey are good actors but just not convincing as the leads. Patrick has a few snappy lines but not enough to lighten up this movie. Julie Bishop did a nice job in her role as the jealous Florence Lentz. I sure didn't recognize "Aunt Em" in Clara Blandick's portrayal. All in all a pretty pedestrian mystery movie.
