Preposterous but engaging
29 January 2016 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

By the time this film was made so many crime and mystery films had been made that it would appear that producers were seeking even more complex and unusual plots and methods of murder to stump the cinema going public.In this case it is murder by vacuum cleaner.It is therefore rather difficult to take this film seriously.In fact Mary Clare as the female detective seems to go through this film with a smile on her face as if she is constantly wondering with amusement that she is actually getting paid to make this tosh..She is supported by a youngish Irene Handel and an impossibly young looking Nigel Patrick.This film may be rubbish but it is nevertheless extremely entertaining rubbish which does not outsmart its welcome.
