Storyline

A shot rings out in a darkened apartment; a woman screams and flees, tricking architect Jimmy McMillan into giving her a ride. McMillan returns and finds a body; but the police find a different body! He and the woman in question (Mary Rawlins, niece of the late owner), both suspects, become allies; among light romantic banter they hunt the real killer behind the seven doors of a blind alley, housing eccentric suspects and a dark, intricate, spooky cellar...

Seven doors to boredom.
1 March 2007 | by (www.martsander.com) – See all my reviews

Unfortunately a boring flick, and obviously the only way to see it is the butchered bootleg Public Domain version, which is so blurry and dark that at times you have hard time making out where the screen is. The leading actors are a nuisance. The man spends most of his screen time trying to appear nonchalant, charming and sexy, forgetting totally what the film is about and that he is a murder suspect because of some dame who played him for a goose to start with. The dame herself merely walks through the flick, being dignified if she's not busy appearing cute. It's a rather badly written stuff, never interesting or witty. No good camera work, no memorable soundtrack, no glamorous actresses or atmospheric sets. It only scratches the surface of the genre, and nothing happens if you miss this totally missable flick.
