Stolen Assignment

1955

Terence Fisher
Director
British Lion
Distributor

Arist's wife is found murdered. Who killed her, and why? That's up to two rival reporters. Oh, and the police, too.

Enjoyable little murder mystery with a comedic edge, bolstered by a brisk pace and some good performances, especially Carey's hateful old biddy.
