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.

Warner Bros Remake
27 June 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Regis Toomey, Lee Patrick, Julie Bishop, and Clara Blandick star in "The Nurse's Secret," a 1941 remake of Warner Brothers' "While the Patient Slept" The story concerns a suicide that Inspector Patton (Tooney) thinks is murder. The members of the household all act strangely, and Patton (Toomey) sends in his girlfriend, nurse Ruth Adams (Patrick) to take care of the elderly woman in the home (Blandick) who broke down after finding her nephew's body and to see what she can find out. There are plenty of suspects, as well as things that go bump in the night.

Average film, and I frankly wasn't sure at first if it was supposed to be funny or not as it was so over the top. Patrick had a nice, energetic personality, but it felt like these people were directed to act as if they were on stage rather than before a camera. Way too big.

You'll see lots of familiar faces in this, though: Julie Bishop, George Chandler, Charles Trowbridge, Virginia Brissac - names that might not mean much to you but the faces are instantly recognizable.

It's just okay.
