Val Guest (1962)

PG Certificate


Our Score
This satisfying murder mystery benefits from the reassuring presence of Jack Warner as the detective on the case. Set in Brighton, director Val Guest adopts an unsensational, pseudo-documentary approach that concentrates on the often laborious details of police procedure as the identity of dead woman is ascertained and her killer is slowly unmasked. Among the cast of familiar British faces, American actress Yolande Donlan - Mrs Val Guest - is excellent as a spinster who narrowly misses being a murder victim.


Brighton policemen track down the killer of a woman found in a deserted beach house. Murder mystery, starring Jack Warner, Ronald Lewis, Michael Goodliffe and John Barron.
