Candles at Nine 1944 NR

Amazon Instant Video

(5) IMDb 6/10

A tad long-winded, but overall this is a fairly enjoyable, sometimes creepy British mystery thriller. Much of the action is centered about a spooky estate where a singer is forced to spend the night in order to claim her inheritance. The film's highlight is Lehman, who turns in one of the best-ever performances as a sinister housekeeper.

I very much enjoyed this old Spooky House Mystery! I love these in general. They are usually allot of fun. This one was especially so because it was British and therefore not bound by the film codes our own films had during the 30's and 40's. Watch for the scene with two brothers in the bathroom. Double entendres and British humor at its best. It is a good print with good sound. A lot of fun!

I actually have only one good thing to say. The housekeeper was superb. Everything and everybody else in the movie was awful. Don't waste your time on this one
