| good starting premise
Joe Valerie is a gangster who has stashed his loot. He's suffering unbearable pains on his death bed and offers Dr. Cornelius the location for a quick end. Mrs. Marble reads about Joe's death in the newspaper and assumes ownership of the loot. Mattie disagrees. Mrs. Marble falls down the stairs dead after seeing a vision. The police recruits clairvoyant Patricia to help with the investigation.

It's a haunted house meets murder mystery. I do like the starting premise. The police using a clairvoyant is a little out there. Warner Oland who plays Dr. Cornelius made his name playing Charlie Chan. At least, he's not doing a fake Asian here. It's fun that devolves a little into Scooby Doo territories. It's fine.
