This is an adaptation of the first book in the Three Investigators series but the second movie. See more »
At the beginning of the movie the Rolls Royce is seen driving on the right side of the road. At the end of the movie, as the boys return from their trip, the Rolls drives on the left side, which is wrong for California, but correct for South Africa, where the movie was filmed. See more »
This was my absolute favorite of the Alfred Hitchcock and the 3 investigators series - the book is a fantastic, I actually picked up a used copy a few years ago just to re-read one of my childhood favorites.
The movie does not do justice to the book - While I thought the character actors/actresses were great, the acting of the sheriff left something to be desired -
I also hated to see the movie re-written to have the destruction of this terrific castle at the end - but the sets were great - I loved seeing the way the castle was designed.
Hopefully we will see more of the 3 investigators series, with better writing, and more attention to the other minor roles, with better acting and lines.
