A prologue set in 1889 shows Winton being killed by lover Kent. Using newspaper headlines, the story is brought up to 1929 and the main plot begins. An odd little antique dealer, his daughter, maid, and butler have moved into the mansion where the original crime took place. The girl's

fiance, a reporter, arrives at the mansion and a series of strange murders begins. The film relies on standard characters and plotting. The acting varies from a funny performance by O'Connor to so-so efforts from the rest of the cast. The soundtrack is terrible. By 1930 sound technology had

progressed significantly, but this film shows none of its benefits. The direction is all right, though an abundance of plot loopholes leaves this an unthrilling thriller.
