An anniversary dinner of thirteen guests, a mysterious legacy, and a murderer among the attendees... Who will survive?
This Monogram melodrama is a remake of the 1932 thriller THE 13TH GUEST, which starred Ginger Rogers and Lyle Talbot. In the remake, Ginger's role, that of a woman who is both murder victim and murder suspect (honest!), is played by Helen Parrish. Talbot's character, a womanizing private eye, is essayed by Dick Purcell. The plot concerns a an anniversary dinner, a mysterious legacy, and a hooded villain who utilizes electricity to dispose of the heirs. While MYSTERY OF THE 13TH GUEST falls short of the original, it is in its own way quite a treat. Both films were based on a novel by Armitage Trail, better known as the author of SCARFACE.
