Good Character Actors & an Under-Appreciated B-Movie Director
Overlooked B-Movie Director Ross Lederman Made Over 100 Films and Ended His Prolific Career in Television. He Had It. An Ability to Make a Low-Budget Movie Interesting with Creative Pizazz and a Steady, Sometimes Flourishing, Hand.
This One is About Characters. A Lot of Characters with Varying Personalities Living in a Boarding House in London (actually WB back lot) and the Bodies are Being Stacked Here and There and the Audience is Asked..."Who Done It?"
Entertaining and Interesting for its Short Running Time of Just Over an Hour. There is a Twist Ending that No One Will See Coming and it's a Pleasure Being Fooled, If You Let It. A Good Cast with Some Recognizable Character Actors Make this an Above Average Mystery Movie with a Light Touch.
Note...America had not entered WWII at the time and this was a shout out to our overseas cousins, who were. It Even Shows an admiration for British Colonialism, concerning India (that now seems embarrassing).
