Trivia

Inside joke: When the police inspectors are searching the flat at the beginning, they come across some photographs of the dead woman's boyfriends. One comments to the other that they might recognise some of these men from their own rogues' gallery. He pauses, examines one and says knowingly, "John Mills!" Obviously a tongue-in-cheek reference to a certain fellow actor! See more »

pedestrian detective movie
16 October 2005 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

This film is a slightly below average detective movie which passes the time if you've nothing else to do. As with many similar black and white films of the era "The Woman in Question" offers an insight into post-war Britain, but it doesn't hold a candle to "Brighton Rock" which, like this film, also has a seaside setting.

The story takes a while to get started, but Jean Kent is excellent as the murder victim as described to the police by different witnesses. Hermione Baddeley also does well in a dull and overlong role as neighbour Mrs Finch, whose son discovers the murder. There is a small twist right near the end, but it is hardly much of a surprise and the film ending is abrupt and disappointing. 5/10
