Product description

Product Description

A taut, complex whodunit with a brilliantly nerve-racking climax, Noose for a Lady marked the directorial debut of German-born writer, producer and director Wolf Rilla - best known for 1960's Village of the Damned, his masterly adaptation of John Wyndham's The Midwich Cuckoos. This rare and compelling feature, released in 1953, is presented here in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements, in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.

Simon Gale returns from Uganda to find his cousin, Margaret, has been convicted of poisoning her husband, and her execution is only seven days away. Refusing to believe in her guilt, Simon and Margaret's stepdaughter Jill set out to find the real killer, questioning everyone remotely connected with the dead man. As far as Simon is concerned, everyone is a suspect, and when the man who had promised him vital information is found poisoned, he believes he has solved the mystery...

Indeed, a very fine little film from the period. As others have remarked, the reproduction is of excellent quality both in sound and vision.

There are a good half-dozen or more characters who might have wished to see the demise of what, by all accounts, was a rather sadistic individual whom nobody appeared to like, not even his own daughter! And so, it would appear obvious from the bare facts that the opportunity to slip in an overdose of barbiturates to the man's bedtime drink could not have been easier for his second wife, who now finds herself convicted of the murder and is in prison awaiting execution.

The plot is festooned with motive and counter-motive that will keep you in suspense to the very end. And, best of all, there is an almost total lack of distracting background audios, enabling one to concentrate the mind on the action. First-rate stuff!

This is a nice little taut thriller played with a light touch by the cast led by a charming but determined Dennis Price. A wife, wrongly accused of murder and with only seven days before her execution, has her case taken up by her cousin on leave from Uganda. There are the usual village suspects all with something to hide and a final unexpected denouement. The sound is a little fuzzy (I would have given it five stars if it had been clearer) but the print is sharp and clean.

Totally agree with C.Fuller and Israel-A lovely little slice of British "B" Cinema (circa 1953). Crisp clear B/W print (4.3 ratio), good sound as well. Extras are a trailer. No Subtitles. The previous 2 reviewers have said all that needs to be said about the film itself. So I will just say - Recomended for lovers of vintage British "B" Whodunits.

Very disappointed with quality of sound. This spoilt the film for me since I could not understand much of the dialogue.

This is a film that I have been longing to watch for decades. I also felt that given the personnel credits for the production that it was likely to have been made at Merton Park studios.
First off this is indeed a film made at Merton Park studios and with location shooting. The art director was George Haslam and the sets are full of furnishings and objects making this a fascinating film to watch.
The film print is excellent and the sound is clear. These Network transfers are proving to be well worth waiting for.
This is a nicely paced who dunnit with plenty of suspects.
The cast is a who's who of British films of the 1940s & early 1950s. Some well written character pieces especially for Colin Tapley & Charles Lloyd Pack.
Dennis Price investigates and does a good job of pulling the facts together.
Excellent value. Also, I like the slimline packaging.

Thought that this may have been a cheap B Movie but it turned out to better than I realised. Dennis Price is great in this part

An excellent thriller starring the great and somewhat under rated Dennis Price who would have been 100 on June 23. He sadly passed away far too soon aged 58 of heart failure on October 6, 1973.
