Come For The Jewel Theft, Stay For The Murder. Or Don't.
8 December 2020 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Private Eye Tom Conway is checking into a jewel theft at a fashion house when a corpse shows up. An appropriately tangled mystery develops, but it's handled in such a dull fashion that I didn't follow it fully. Conway wanders about like he wish he were back at the RKO lot performing in his brother's cast-offs. Roger Delgado -- best remembered as the first "Master" on Doctor Who has a bit of fun bluffing his henchmen, and there are some nice-looking women playing dress models, but it's all handled so efficiently that there's nothing worthwhile.
