Lord Peter Wimsey is struck all of a heap by Harriet Vane, a murder-mystery novelist who's on trial for poisoning her lover with arsenic.

During the scene where Wimsey is walking to Urquhart's office, he passes a theater closed for renovations to convert to sound films. Alfred Hitchcock's "Blackmail" is advertised as the first British sound film, which will premiere there on July 17, 1929. Actually was only a part-talkie as sound became available well after "Blackmail" was into production, and few scenes were reshot with sound. "Blackmail" officially premiered in the U.K. on June 30, 1929. See more
