Review

Our Score
Rising well above the quota-quickie average, this entertaining little whodunnit shoehorns an extravagant amount of plot into its short running time. Directed at a fair lick by Peter Maxwell, it revolves around the complicated sex life of smoothie artist Emrys Jones, who wants to leave his wife for his model mistress. When the body of an unknown woman is found in an isolated country cottage, detective Patrick Holt is called in to investigate. This marked a change of pace for Honor Blackman, then at the height of her fame as Cathy Gale in TV series The Avengers.

Summary

A detective investigating the murder of an artist's wife becomes convinced one of his models shot her, then adopted her identity to avoid suspicion. Mystery, starring Patrick Holt, Honor Blackman and Emrys Jones.
