a story of love intrigue and murder
21 April 2006 | by danny-maceSee all my reviews

I thought the story line was well thought out by the writer, dornford Yates. Maybe not one of the best he ever wrote, but i really liked it because my father-in-law, Frederick Munday, was in it. Although he never had a speaking part or was recognised in the credits, he was the policeman that led the murderer off to serve his sentence. He appeared, as an extra, in many movies including those magnificent men in their flying machines. He died on 4th April 2006 aged 77. Also known in the U.S. as man in the dark, There were times during the film i wished that they could enlarge on the characters a bit more and i felt the story line quite flimsy, William Sylvester and his character, Paul Gregory,made up for it. A very watchable afternoon matinée movie.
