Lee Patterson plays detective because he's the chief suspect in his wife's murder
3 January 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched a very nice widescreen print of this Britnoir. The quality of this b-movie murder mystery is quite good as such films go. I liked it. It moves right along (only 57 minutes long), sparked by an energetic Lee Patterson performance. His wife, with whom he has had poor relations, has been stabbed to death in the nearby coach house while he slept. Superintendent Geoffrey Keen makes him the chief suspect and is satisfied with that idea, so Patterson sets out to find out his wife's movements and acquaintances. This leads to a respectable number of suspects with motives and opportunity. Even Patterson's own friend who assists him, Barbara Shelley, comes in for some suspicion, but there are also Ferdy Mayne and his wife as well as a doctor (Peter Dyneley) and his receptionist (Jane Hylton).

Count this as another solid production from the mid-20th century era of short crime films produced in Great Britain.
