Some good...some bad...
on December 6, 2009
First of all the price is right. You get 4 movies for the price of 1..!
1. Kennel Murder Case....this is a Philo Vance Mystery starring William Powell. The plot is about a man who is killed in a locked room. Police rule suicide but with Philo Vance on the case the real truth comes out. This one is a 5 star mystery. Good print and sound.
2. Eyes In The Night....Edward Arnold plays a blind detective involved in murder with a "sidekick" to do the dirty work and a dog as a companion. This one also a 5 star mystery. Good print and sound.
3. The Limping Man....this one is about murder and smuggling in London. This one is a 3 star movie. I liked it but it is not an award winner. A British film so that will tell you something of the "style". Good print and sound.
4. The Spy In White.....stars James Mason as a British officer who gets into a fight over a girl in the officer's club. Unfortunately, the other man is a Turkish Prince. Mason is forced to resign and is offered a job as a tobacco executive in Turkey. This is where the movie goes downhill. I thought the story/plot was BAD..!!.......so-so print quality and sound...this one at best a 2 star movie....my rating is 1 star..!
If nothing else...buy this set for the first two movies and you'll have a real bargain.
