Editorial Reviews

With GORDON HARKER, ALASTAIR SIM. A cat creeps across a floor. A man with a suitcase descends a flight of stairs and exits a rooming house. Almost immediately the landlady climbs the stairs to bring supper to one of her boarders, a man named James Henreid. She knocks on his door. There is no answer. She enters the room and shrieks in horror as she glimpses Henreids corpse! He has just been brutally murdered and this surely is a case which only can be solved by no-nonsense Scotland Yard Inspector Hornleigh and his devoted assistant Sergeant Bingham (who are perfectly played by Gordon Harker and Alastair Sim). The inspector and sergeant (whose relationship is reminiscent of that of Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson) promptly arrive on the scene and begin hunting for evidence. The lone clue they find is Henreids missing suitcase. Before Hornleigh and Bingham are able to determine the motive for the crime and nab the culprit, they must try to prevent additional killings. A mind-massaging murder mystery that winds up with a shocking conclusion. 76 minutes.

This is a great vintage mystery set in Pre-WWII England. Alistar Sim plays comic relief as the bumbling assistant. The inspector is an avid stamp collector and many of his lines represent allusions to stamp collecting. I am looking forward to obtaining the other two movies in the series.

The quality of this product is the worst that I have ever purchased from Amazon. The DVD pack bears no resemblance to the photo shown on the page - it is a plain DVD case with no sleeve or cover, no photo. The caveat belatedly written at the end of the description provides no defence against the charge of deceptive advertising. In addition, the film itself is unwatchable - it appears to be a third generation home-produced copy burned onto a blank DVD available from any office supplies store. The film itself is fuzzy and blurred to the point of being out-of-focus. All in all, this is a real amateur attempt and I feel conned to the degree that I have reported this lot to Amazon and am seeking a refund under the distance selling regulations. AVOID!

I'll accept no-frills packaging, but visual quality this dismal is unforgivable. How many generations away from original material must a film be to look this murky? There's something very wrong when you can't read the opening credits.
