enjoyable whodunnit
15 January 2010 | by (london) – See all my reviews

The first thing i must point out is that this is not a TV film.It was shown as the bottom half of a double bill on the ABC cinema circuit as were all the other Edgar Wallace films.This film is archetypal Wallace.A convoluted plot and a big puzzle as to how the murder was committed.In this instance a man is murdered in a room with no windows with a steel lined door which locks only from the inside.Whodunnit and how did he do it.I have to say that whilst the who was easy the how was a completely different matter.One can only applaud the ingenuity of Wallaces imaginations.Though i have to say that i doubt that a murder is ever likely to have been committed in this fashion.One of the joys of this series of films is the familiar faces that crop up.Of course the lead is Bernard Lee of "M" fame and the ex con turned butler is Richard Caldicott an experienced farceur mainly remembered for his Admiral Povey in "The Navy Lark".
