Storyline

Nicholas Revel (Peter Lawford) is a young man any dowager in London welcomes to her parties. He has taking ways, and the Calgurie Emerald is one of the things he takes. This daring theft brings unexpected complications, among them the daughter, Jane Frensham (Dawn Addams), of the head of Scotland Yard, Sir Herbert Frensham (Michael Hordern)...and a maniacal killer loose in London. Revel sets a trap for the madman, with himself as bait, in a fog-shrouded stalk where one of them has to die. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Improbable, Mildly Entertaining Victorian Thriller.
21 June 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Peter Lawford stars as Nicholas Revel, a jewel thief who is mistaken for a serial killer of London police officers. To clear himself, Revel has to catch the real killer. An improbably plotted, cliche-ridden, mildly entertaining mystery with Lawford as his usual handsome, debonair, bland self. Not much action except for an effective fight between Revel and the murderer at the film's climax. The cast wanders through a foggy, gaslit studio set that looks like it was left over from a Sherlock Holmes film. This sort of story has been done worse, but it has been done better, too. Mostly it has been done too often.
