Man returns to seaside resort to incriminate the man who murdered his wife. Things quickly become a bit more complicated than that, though.
Confused but intriguing film that tries (and somewhat suceeds) in merging a murder mystery with slice of life comedy (in a very similar vein to director Annakin's Holiday Camp). The major problem is that of Peter Lorre's character, who is supposed to be a key player in the whole film, but whose relationship with Hartnell is never clearly defined. When Lorre throws a method acting tantrum at the climax, it comes across as both confusing and embarassing. Definitely worth watching, though, especially for Hartnell's marvellously nervous performance.
Note: Andrew Leigh is prominently credited as "The Reserved Man," but he is nowhere to be seen. Similarly, IMDb shows Grace Denbeigh-Russell as the nosey woman on the beach, but it isn't her.
