| Enjoyable, though predictable, afternoon feature.
A rather quickly-paced, at times funny, murder mystery about an American flyer (John Crawford) who becomes embroiled in an investigation after a women is murdered in a sleepy British village. Jane Griffiths is a local school mistress whom he had befriended, and together they try to find the true culprit who might just have been seen by a young boy (John Dare) obsessed with "Mother Goose". This is quite an interesting observation on suburban British life at the time - the local prejudices against the "marauding" American airmen; popularity of provincial theatre and the delight young children took from a simple pantomime.
