A sleuthing vicar
26 August 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

A 23 year old Jack Hawkins is the only name that Americans will recognize from Shot In The Dark. This is not by the way a prequel to the Pink Panther classic.

It is one of those old English murder mysteries with a little spoofing on the side. An elderly old miser who was no doubt a miserable creature his whole life does a will on phonograph where he says he will be murdered by one of his greedy grasping relatives. Guess what, he is done in, but by whom?

Lots of suspects including Hawkins boyfriend of the deceased's niece. A sleuthing vicar happens by and solves all.

We called these B pictures, over across the pond they were quota quickies. It's got everything an English murder mystery requires including secret passages.

They've done worse. Average for its type of film.
