A veteran British barrister must defend his client in a murder trial that has surprise after surprise.
This was Una O'Connor's last big screen motion picture.
Might as well get a bigger box of more mothballs and put me away to.
Both Sir Wilfred and Mr. Myers introduce evidence directly to the court themselves, which is against courtroom procedure. Sir Wilfred, for example, trumps Inspector Hearne's testimony by directly revealing Leonard Vole's blood type, instead of properly calling a witness with personal or professional knowledge of it.
Before the film begins, a message appears onscreen saying that to avoid ruining the effect of the surprise ending, patrons should not take their seats during the last few minutes of the movie.
