An actress is persuaded by her boyfriend, the head of a private-detective agency, to take a job as a housekeeper in the home of a wealthy elderly woman. It seems that no one has seen the woman for a while, and her new young husband is claiming that she is ill and doesn't want to see anybody and is refusing to let anyone in the house.Written by
Detective Bruce Lester (Larry) calls on the help of friend Hy Hazell (Celia) to help him discover what has happened to Elsie Wagstaff (Aunt Nora). She goes undercover as a housemaid in the country house in which Wagstaff is hidden away and young husband John Bailey (Lester) seems to be scheming up some evilness.
It's a short film and it keeps you watching for the duration. There are no surprises and Hy Hazell carries the film along with her enthusiasm. It takes a bit of a while to get going and it's ok while it lasts. It's a comedy so there is never really any real threat to anyone's life although the film does succeed in delivering some tension, eg, hiding in the bedroom.
Of more interest is reading about Hy Hazell and the way she died in real life. She choked on a steak whilst eating at a Westminster restaurant at the age of 50. I want to know more. It's more interesting than the film.
