Storyline

A former police detective who is now a private investigator is approached by two elderly sisters, who say that someone is terrorizing them, and they think it's the ex-fiancée of one of the sisters, who they believe had killed their father years before. However, when it turns out that the man they suspected has been long dead, the detective has to look elsewhere for suspects--and their shady butler just happens to be a prime one.

Watch it for Slaughter

Apparently, MURDER AT THE GRANGE was originally an episode of a short-lived TV series starring the inimitable Tod Slaughter, but I saw the theatrical edition (which curiously omits Slaughter's name from the opening credits).

It's a short and straightforward piece, in which a private investigator looks into the back story of a pair of elderly sisters who have been receiving death threats. It's all to do with a complex back story beginning with a torrid love affair and all is made right at the end, but not before the usual twists and turns.

Patrick Barr is the stolid investigator, but the fun here comes from seeing Slaughter hamming it up a treat as the dodgy butler.
