  1. Great Mystery. Done in the Basil Rathbone era of ‘old Castle and Family’ style British ‘who done it’ or ‘who’s doing it’ plot. It is an entertaining period piece.

  2. Lillian M. Thunder

    Somewhat interesting and yet not quite what I though it would be, I give it two and one half stars.

  3. I liked this movie but, I wish there would’ve developed more about why things ended up the way it did. A little bit more background story on why the culprit ended up that way. Still enjoyed it though.

  4. Wow, did that old gal rule that old estate with an iron hand! It was one of those movies where people keep dying and suddenly after an hour or so in the last ten minutes we learn why. There were a couple clues about the possibility of family madness but they didn’t register with me. To me the movie was just OK. The centuries old line will not end with me because you are going to marry your cousin! Ah, the old aristocracy was certainly determined.
