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.

Some facts about this featurette
4 March 2001 | by (Saint-Ouen, France) – See all my reviews

"Murder at the Grange" was shot under another title, "Death at the Festival", at Bushey Studios. It was part of the "Inspector Morley Investigates" series, originally made with an eye towards television - but apparently never aired. Filmed in 35mm, some of the episodes were shown in theaters in 1952 and 1954 as two "features", "King of the Underworld" and "Murder at Scotland Yard" - each composed of 3 episodes. "Murder at the Grange" was shown separately as a short film. Another featurette, "A Ghost for Sale", was also released separately, but, although it has the same principals, is NOT part of the series. Apart from these released titles, others (exact number unknown) were made and I saw some of them. They are NOT mentioned in movie reference books... "Murder at the Grange" seems to have been slightly altered for its release; the name of Tod Slaughter doesn't appear in the print itself, probably a result of the change of title, and the end credits mention "Adapted and Produced by Frank Ross; Directed by Gerald Landau; Made at Pinewood Studios, England" - however, these changes seem limited to some exteriors shot (probably lifted from other episodes) and no real sequence seems to have been added, as ALL of the actors appearing in the final result were listed in the original credits for "Murder at the Festival"...
