A car plunging over a cliff kills its two occupants identified as newspaperman Lewis Forrester and actress Alison Ford (Terry Moore). Surviving Lewis are his two brothers, Tim (Robert Beatty), a portrait painter, and Dave (William Sylvester), a pilot. Scotland Yard discovers that Lewis' death was engineered by a gang of international diamond smugglers he was about to expose. Before he died, he had sent someone in London a post card with a sketch of a woman's hand holding a Chianti bottle.

Alright, so it's not much of an alibi. But do I need one? You're not seriously suggesting that I killed that girl?
I haven't suggested anything Mr Forrester. But let's face it she was found on your bed in your flat.

This film begins rather inauspiciously and my advice it to stick with it! Yes, you see a car plunge off a cliff and explode...a rather clichéd scene...but it does get better.
Soon after this accident, Tim arrives to investigate about the death of his brother, Dave as well as Dave's lady friend. However, soon a bunch of weird and unexplanable things occur...and soon Tim finds that the local police inspector thinks HE is a murderer when a dead woman is found in his apartment!! What's this all about and what about all the strange twists? Well, I'll say no more as I don't want to spoil the many surprises.
What I liked about this film is that although there are a few predictable moments, much of the picture was NOT predictable and it kept me guessing. Well acted and well done...and well worth seeing.
