(1950) John Bentley, Dinah Sheridan, Jack Livesay, Andrew Leigh, Dino Galvani, Barbara Couper. A cool Temple murder mystery. A brilliant scientist is kid-napped by two gunmen. A criminal mastermind called “Zed” wants the scientist’s new formula for a laser-powered atomic missile defense system. The scientist’s daughter goes to Paul Temple to enlist his aid in finding her father. Temple and his wife are soon plunging across the British countryside, looking for clues. They end up in a country hotel filled with intrigue and a bevy of suspicious characters. Soon bodies are falling all over the place. The “closet scene” packs a bit of a jolt and the climax inside the deserted priory is quite memorable. Keeps you guessing until the very end. 16mm.
