Our Score
Edgar Wallace's classic whodunnit has been reworked into an efficient crime story by producer Alexander Korda. Edmund Lowe reprises his stage role as the methodical Scotland Yard inspector who doggedly pursues arch criminal Sebastian Shaw. Confined within starchy studio sets, William K Howard directs steadily, but the removal of that touch of mystery leaves him with precious little to play with, to the extent that he has to bolster the action with protracted love scenes between Lowe and Ann Todd. Robert Newton and Alastair Sim put in pleasing support appearances.
