Douglass Montgomery's 22nd and final film in a career that spanned two decades seems to be among the lost. Made in Britain shortly after WWII, I have searched high and low for it -among our archives and those in the UK and have not been able to find a trace of it.
The story is thus - A married pharmacist falls for another woman, but his wife won't give him a divorce. He attempts to get her out of the way by slipping her medicine that would induce a heart attack. He believes that he has succeeded, but finds when he tries to bury her, that she died of natural causes - the pills were not taken. However, the evidence points to his having murdered her and he is hunted by the police.
If anyone knows of the existence of this film and/or its availability on video, I'd be grateful to be emailed.
