Another Body in Another Trunk
7 January 2018 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

When Leonora Corbett phones Colin Keith-Johnson that she wants to give their marriage another chance, he tries to buy off his lover Judy Kelly. She wants to stick around for the wife, with a gun. There's a struggle, and Keith-Johnson sticks the inconvenient body in a trunk and begins to figure out how to get rid of it.

The 1930s seems to have had a rash of people trying to meld these melodramatic situations and climaxes with a more grounded base and some Grand Guignol accents. In America we got bodies stuck in trunks in ARSENIC AND OLD LACE, and in Great Britain, the Boulting Brothers early tried their hand with DESIGN FOR MURDER. This particular movie is based on a stage show by J. Lee Thompson, who went more whole-heartedly into films, most memorably with international productions like THE GUNS OF NAVARONNE.

This one is short, with a decent twist, and some reasonably insane cackling.
