Mystery-Suspense-Film Noir > DVD


(1948) John Bentley, Dinah Sheridan, Margaretta Scott, Abraham Sofaer, Alan Wheatley, Jack Raine.  British crime films didn’t come much better than this.  Bentley is wonderful as the writer/detective Paul Temple.  In this snappy thriller, Temple delves into the murder of several different women, all of whom were patients of a strange, bearded doctor, wonderfully played by the sinister Sofaer.  The story finally leads to a crumbling monastery that looks like the inside of Dracula’s castle.  Temple and his wife are tied to a pillar, the villain opens a crumbling stone gate, and water begins to rush in!  Will they escape?  There are many great moments in this film including a wonderful scene when a woman, under hypnosis, begins to give information that will give the killer’s identity.  The light goes out, a gunshot is heard, followed by a scream!  This is a stylish, very likable murder mystery with some great sinister moments and gothic touches.  Very cool.  NOTE: Our DVD master was derived  from an old video master of a 16mm print originally transferred on an RCA TK-27 telecine unit back in the 1980s.  It looks a little softer than our newer transfers, but is still most watchable.  From 16mm.
