I can't adequately review this movie without giving the plot away. Suffice to say it's a Gothic Murder Mystery with several murders and plot twists that takes place in an old stately English country mansion. Some of the characters are not what they seem and there are hidden secrets to unfold. Overall a very good mystery if you like the type. Don't expect a lot of action, explosions, or graphic violence. However, if sinister surroundings and characters interest you then you'll enjoy this one....surprise ending..!! Overall a good mystery and worth the money.

This is a fairly well done dark house mystery with a surprise ending. The actors did a fine job, and the story holds together. It's perfect for when you want to lose yourself into a nice old-fashioned mystery.

A clever Edgar Wallace play set in an English mansion with plenty of suspects and mystery. The Scotland Yard detective anchors the chaos nicely and this is one I'm happy to add to my collection of old mysteries

This is the best old movie I have come by in a while. The ending will not be what you expect which is good. The sound and picture are good and the acting, well not bad. Its a keeper.

The Case of the Frightened Lady is, in my opinion, a delightful little mystery film from the '30's. I love British films and mysteries; I purchased this on a hunch and my hunch paid off. I've enjoyed it and it's one I pull out and watch again when I'm not interested in the offering on TCM that night. There are some interesting character actors of the British genre in it that you might recognize. I vote: Buy it! It's even better on a cold dark night with a spot of tea laced with a sip of brandy to keep you warm.
