The Riverside Murder

1935

Albert Parker
Director
Fox British
Studio

Financiers on the eve of a group payout are being killed one by one. Can Inspector Winton catch the killer?

Enjoyable Edgar Wallace-like murder mystery is nothing new, and the requisite romance between policeman and reporter doesn't quite seem believable, but Sydney is affable and Sim gets to practice his sour Scots police sergeant in preparation for the Inspector Hornleigh films. Witty script and a satisfying ending, too.
