Stamp collecting doctor gets involved in a murder mystery when he finds one of his patients dead.
Serviceable enough B-mystery, based on an early TV serial. That shows in the finished product, as the film is a bit stagy and soap operatic, with periodic blasts of dramatic music that you would think signals a commercial break. The real problem is Beatty’s character, who for a doctor is an incredibly stupid person. Granted, throughout most of the film he’s thinking with something other than his brain. Perhaps believable, but very trying to watch, and assuredly the real police would not be as tolerant of his foolishness as they are in the film. Satisying ending, though, and good performances from Coke and Delgado. Also the usual bursts of overacting from Beatty, and the usual distant, distracted performance from Sellars.
