4.0 out of 5 stars Classic British murder mystery, 3 Feb. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Case Of The Frightened Lady [DVD] (DVD)
This is an all regions DVD which may be helpful to anyone ordering from outside the UK. A young Marius Goring features as one of the lead actors as well as Felix Aylmer and Ronald Shiner (who plays a jokey character akin to his other more comedic roles). It is Black and White (made in 1940), running for over 80 minutes and the picture quality is very good though it doesn't indicate it has been restored.

It is quite intriguing and well acted as a "whodunnit". I like this era of cinema so am somewhat biased in favour. Three stars seems a bit mean and the 4 stars I've given slightly generous but in the end this is quite an average film of this kind and might well not appeal to a more modern audience. No explicit violence worth mentioning and no explicit sex and does not suffer from the loss of either which I personally consider degrade many films and are used to distract from the poor quality. This film does have a kind of quality but it is still unexceptional in my opinion. However, if you like this era of cinema I think you will enjoy it, and for a price less than seeing it at the cinema you cant complain.
