Maybe it was in part because I didn't see a good print of this movie that I found it so draggy. But maybe also it was that the plot is overly convoluted with so many characters flitting about that it was hard to keep track of them all. And way too many of the scenes are in the dark with just a flashlight or low output lamps shedding any light. Old dark house mystery indeed. After Mark Clayton (Ian Flemming) is murdered, the search is on for the East Indian jewels he has hidden in the house. Assault after assault occurs - that house is a dangerous place to be. Basil Sydney and Molly Lamont did a nice job in their roles but unless one is a big fan of 1930s or Dark House type mysteries, there's not a lot to recommend about this movie. Watchable but soon forgettable.
