She Speaks Her Mind
24 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There have been numerous stories of ventriloquist's dummies being an extension of their masters. In this one a man has been found murdered. He had been pushed down a set of stairs and has died. A detective goes about trying to figure this out. However, the ventriloquist speaks for himself and for the beautiful woman he has created. The more she "says" the more suspicious he becomes. We hear the story of a love affair with a lovely ballerina who left this man and so he made a dummy in her image. Beyond this, it is a sort of dull story, not well presented, although Allan Bates has a major role. But it is still talky and hard to fathom.
