A busman's holiday for March.
29 November 2020 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

Colonel March is holidaying in France, but rather than relaxing, he gets involved in a murder, the only clue to hand is a Sailor's hat.

I didn't love this one a great deal I'm afraid to say, the opening was excellent, and definitely the best part, the bulk of the story was rather disappointing, the links and clues were paper thin. Karloff himself doesn't look hugely engaged here.

Eric Pohlmann is definitely wasted as Inspector Goron, before watching this I watched Carry on Spying, he was better served even in that.
