Exceptional 'B' mystery-thriller. A lost gem!
1 August 2001 | by (New York City, USA) – See all my reviews

The unjustly-maligned Republic Pictures churned out a number of modest 'B' thrillers in its heyday, and this is one of the best. The murder of an eccentric, elderly multi-millionaire brings his money-hungry relatives flocking to his gloomy, isolated mansion--as well as the police to investigate whodunnit. Paul Kelly & Virginia Grey top the cast, the suspense is packed into a swift, unnerving 56 minutes--and the revelation of the killer (trying to hurl Miss Grey to her death from a rickety wooden bridge) is genuinely eerie and terrifying. An "A" job on a "B" budget--which I've been trying to track down for over 40 years to no avail. Will someone please make these forgotten Republic "sleepers" available for cable-or-VHS viewing? "Whispering Footsteps" ranks in the same class and category.
