Underwhelming Hammer whodunnit
24 July 2014 | by (london) – See all my reviews

This was made by Hammer during their period when they made crime dramas for the bottom half of a double bill.To me this film breaks one of the cardinal rules of such films in that the actual murderer should be amongst the original suspects and not almost brought in as an afterthought.So during the first three quarters of the films running time we are concentrating on the main characters,and then without any warning we find that it is a character who we had not seen since the opening reel,which i found to be rather unsatisfactory.Good to see Katie Johnson 5 years before her late ascent to stardom.Otherwise totally unremarkable film.
