A tranquil British village is terrorized by a series of violent murders; meanwhile, virginal Rosalind Russell is feeling a strange attraction to the handsome young cockney (Robert Montgomery) who's just arrived in town toting a mysteriously heavy hatbox. Emlyn Williams's stage thriller was a classic of the genre; this 1937 MGM adaptation is a little less so, thanks to some overwrought, uncertain direction from Richard Thorpe. Montgomery is still strikingly effective, in what was for him a major departure from type. With Dame May Whitty, Alan Marshal, and E.E. Clive. 117 min.
