Storyline

Young Raymond Rudford,sculptor, is on trial for slitting the throat of his uncle, who had adopted and raised him after Raymond's parent's died when he was a young boy. The prosecution allows his motive was fear of being disinherited if he married his fiancé, the fair Alicia Atherton, against his uncle's wishes, and the prosecution lays a mountain of evidence against Raymond, including his razor, dragged from an artificial lake on the estate, as the murder weapon; Raymond's bloody fingerprints and footprints found at the scene of bedroom crime, and his bloody shoes, found in his cupboard and bloody monogrammed-handkerchief found under his uncle's death bed. Raymond's only defense is that he could not have committed the crime as he goes into a paroxysm of dread at the mere sight of blood, a phobia he has had ever since childhood when his dog was run over by a lorry and the dog's blood was splattered into his face.

Weak quota quickie
26 August 2016 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

Difficult to understand the high Mark for this rather weak quota quickie produced by British International Pictures.If the plot was not bad enough the acting,particularly by Richard Bird is beyond belief.He doesn't just chew the scenery he wolf's it down in one bite.I suppose that this was their idea of showing madness in that era.Raymond Huntley is hypnotized into falsely admitting to the murder.Difficult to realise that he was relatively young when he made this film.George Zucco appears briefly as a policeman and Francis L Sullivan appears as counsel for the prosecution.QUOTA Quickies can be well made despite the low budget and the speed with which the film had to be made,however this definitely not one of them and was destined for oblivion the day after they were released.No doubt the actors would wish to forget their participation.
