Our Score
Awesomely bad musical comedy thriller, offering only the melancholy spectacle of a once great star on her uppers. American Frances Day, a bubbly singer/comedienne in Britain from the 1920s, was fading fast by the time she made this senseless second-feature about a company of actors trying to stage a revue in a haunted theatre. The film is reminiscent of, but even cheaper than, the earlier Murder at the Windmill. Day disappeared in 1965 and was a recluse until her death in 1984.


A chorus girl performing in a West End musical investigates the mysterious death of an actor in the same theatre 40 years previously. Mystery, with Frances Day and Patricia Dainton.
