Creepy British thriller stars Bela Lugosi as an evil insurance swindler who poses as the owner of an institution for the blind. When several blind inmates sign over their insurance policies to Lugosi and are then found floating in the Thames, the police get suspicious. Aided by Diana Stuart

(Gynt), the beautiful daughter of one of the victims, the investigators try to crack the case. Lugosi turns in one of his best performances here, managing to underplay his role (unusual for him), thus balancing the more contrived moments in the script. Actor Wilfrid Walter, who plays Lugosi's

grotesque, blind assistant Jake, helped create the effective makeup for his character.
