Colonel March investigates while the viewer twiddles his thumbs
17 October 2016 | by Leofwine_dracaSee all my reviews

THE SILENT VOW is something of an insufferable episode of Colonel March, one that again sees him taking a holiday in Paris and spending his time boozing around in a cafe. When one of the customers just so happens to be murdered via poison, March and his French detective buddy Goron decide to investigate.

This story is a very dull and dated one without even any supernatural-tinged elements to recommend it. It's a straightforward murder case with various suspects and back stories to uncover, but none of it is very interesting. It's a pity, as this film has a better than average cast including a returning Eric Pohlmann, Marne Maitland, Martin Benson, and Anton Diffring.
