| Enjoyable and rather obscure British mystery
The Ghost Camera is an enjoyable British thriller from 1933 and although quite rare, has thankfully been released on video in the UK as part of a double feature with The Last Journey, of which I have a copy.

Two men find a camera in an abandoned car and take it back with them and then find some undeveloped film. They develop it and images include a young woman and a man murdering somebody. They track the woman down by another of the images showing a street name. It turns out that the woman's brother is missing and she teams up with one of the men to look for him. The search takes them all over, including crossing railway lines. Her brother is found eventually but is now facing a murder charge unless the photo of the murder turns up...

The Ghost Camera is partially shot on location and it's good to see the old Southern Region electric trains of the period too. The movie is quite good quality too as it's been remastered.

The cast includes Henry Kendall and early roles for Ida Lupino and John Mills.

The Ghost Camera is worth tracking down and has been on TV as well. Look out for it. A treat.

Rating: 3 and a half stars out of 5.
