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.

Enjoyable Britsh B-Movie Quickie
24 September 2003 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The movie which run at just over 30 minutes is enjoyable with suprisingly good acting by all the cast. It stars British B-Movie actor Patrick Barr who stars as Inspecor John Morley a policeman turned private investigator who is called upon by two old sisters Agatha & Cynthia Quelch (played wondefully by Maragret Boyd & Grace- Denbigh Russell) who suspect that the latter's ex-fiance who they belive killed their father has come back and is terrorising the two of them - but it turns out that he had passed away many years previously, Then who is it? and what is the shady Butler (Tod Slaughter) up to? The movie is pretty preditable and you may have guessed the outcome before the 30 mins are up, but it's all in all it's still a enjoyable film to pass the time The movie is also one of many short British thrilers produced in the early 1950's

My Rating 8/10
