The series of Edgar Wallace mysteries that this film belonged to were quite entertaining and were shown in the cinema before the main feature. It is interesting to see actors you remember, some of whom never progressed, some who were destined to play supporting roles for the rest of their career and some who went on to become major stars. In this film a gang of jewellery thieves rob a house which has just become empty on the death of it's rich lady owner a week earlier. Her jewels are still in the safe(!?). The robbery is not a complete success and one robber hides the jewels in the house as he's about to be captured. The house is put up for sale. Harry H. Corbett plays a struggling estate agent. A lady enquires about buying the house. This eventually leads to Corbett putting two and two together and guessing the jewels may still be there. The events unfold with a few twists and turns, making this a very watchable film.
