Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 217 ratings.
Although this film is filled with a cast of unknowns and the quality of the print isn't perfect (one short scene, in fact, is repeated), it's a lot better than I thought it would be. There's enough suspects to keep you guessing, a wise-cracking female reporter, a dumb detective (I nearl said flat foot) who nearly gets someone killed, and a planetarium - pretty goiod ingredients for a B movie mystery.
This is the story of a murder in a planetarium. As a lecture is being given one of the people in attendance is shot. The police are summoned and quickly become baffled at to who the murderer is.
This is a fun movie. Certainly, it's no better nor no worse than any of the dozens of mysteries turned out at the same time. We have the wise cracking reporter verbally dueling with the head cop, twisted movies, a genuine mystery and a happy ending.However what helps this movie a great deal is its setting, the planetarium, which lifts the whole affair up and makes it truly memorable.
See this movie simply because it's not the regular run of the mill mystery.
