Title: Cat And The Canary
Director: Radlet Metzger
Wilfred Hyde White is rich man who dies in 1914 and arranges for his will to be
shown as a film 20 years later when all the surviving potential beneficiaries are gathered
together in a country house. Carol Lynley is named are the beneficiary, but she has to survive the night without going mad, but a stranger arrives at the door to say a madman is on the loose. A good premise, but this has some of the wost dialogue of any film, has no suspense and the film fails to create any 1930's atmosphere.
Disappointing remake of the earlier Bob Hope version.
