Reviews

First ever UK DVD release of this classic mystery film . Agnes "Astra" Huston (Jean Kent), a fortune teller at a run-down fair, is found murdered in her bedroom. The police track down five of the most likely suspect and start asking questions. As the police question the suspects their interactions with her are shown in flashbacks from their highly suspicious points of view. Director Anthony Asquith, working in the style of a Hitchcock whodunit, deftly moves between multiple points of view in this gritty look at life in a seaport town.

I first saw this on Channel Four many years ago, and it has cropped up on TV occasionally(most recently on Channel 5 I believe) but it is now a very welcome new release to DVD and this wonderful series.
All I can say is, if you want to watch an enjoyable slice of yesterday's Britain, with a host of familiar faces in the cast, you couldn't do better than to settle down and enjoy this intriguing mystery, in which the same events are told from the perspective of each leading character, giving a completely different impression of the murder victim (Jean Kent).
Only quibble might be Dirk Bogarde's accent!!
However, ten out of ten for its arrival to DVD - quality of the print is very good and presentation excellent - it even begins with the old fashioned British Board of Film Censors certificate (It was an "A", of course).

Pour yourself a nice cuppa, and enjoy!

Format: DVD
This is another old British black-and-white '50s film that has been transferred to DVD for those of us who are fed up with endless modern Hollywood films on TV with unpleasant and unlikeable people, car chases and explosions, replacing a good plot. Mind you, this opens with a murder, and then shows us events leading up to it from different person's points of view. It is notable for having quite a distinctive cast - Jean Kent, Dirk Bogarde and Hermione Baddeley to name three. It was obviously made on a restricted budget with only occasional location shots of Brighton, sadly. The print and transfer quality is reasonable for a film from 1950, although I have seen much better. I did find the sound a problem, with some distortion, particularly at the beginning where a small boy with an already piercing voice screams out. Also not all the acting is up to the standard of the leads.

Still, an enjoyable film which I would certainly recommend renting.

Even if plot and direction aren't quite groundbreaking, WiQ's still exactly the type of classic thriller - replete with '50s Brighton atmosphere - which guarantees an enjoyable evening's viewing.

A fortune teller is found dead in her bedroom in a shabby street in a seedy seaside town, just post-war. A rangy Irish police officer comes to investigate. He talks to her neighbours, her sister, a man who wanted her to join him in a music-hall act. We flash back to her life, always from other people's point of view. So we get to see the same people in their own recollections (smartly dressed, talking refined and standing in a shaft of light) and in others' (in which they appear more ordinary and common). There's a wonderful central performance from Jean Kent as the fortune teller, Dirk Bogarde is a man who is not quite what he seems, Hermione Baddeley as the neighbour scrounges food and communes with the spirits. It's a brilliant film - now available on DVD.
