Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 21 ratings.
This is a British fun film with a nice surprise twist at the end that I wouldn't dare divulge. The mysterious Turhan Bey has a small part but does well with it. The entire cast is filled with veteran British actors seenn in dozens of films from comedy to drama. It's just a fun film.
I wanted to see Turhan Bey after reading some of the reviews concerning other movies he'd appeared in. Glad I chose this one for my maiden voyage with Mr. Bey. It was pretty obvious who dun it...I'd figured it out in the first 10 minutes of the movie. Or did I? You will too...but don't bet the farm on it! This one is one of the best surprise endings ever.
I bought this DVD because I am interested in the work of Turhan Bey, and he does a good job here. The play is a little silly, but harmless fun; kind of a play a high school senior class would put on. Reminds me in a way of Ten Little Indians.
This is an English boarding-house style murder mystery, taken from a stage play. Some wonderful English eccentric characters contribute to story, the best being a good comic performance by Mary Field, the nosy spinster prone to romantic fantasy.
If you can keep track of who's doing what to who -
this film is entertaining.. The viewing qulaity if good. There are quite a few plot twists so pay attention. Good film for the price.
