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.

Better than the original
24 December 1999 | by (Parkersburg, West Virginia) – See all my reviews

This is a nice little mystery from Warner Brothers in the 1940's and I thought it was much more enjoyable than the original version that was made by the same studio in the 1930's. I always thought that Lee Patrick was much underrated as an actress, but this is just another good movie for a very good actress.
