The Third Visitor

1951

Production Company

Run of the mill murder mystery based on a stage play, that never manages to transcend its inherent staginess. Decent twist to the plot, but the obnoxiousness of the characters (especially Summerfield) makes getting there a bit of a slog. Waste of good performances by Middleton and Slater and the usual creepy one by Martin-Harvey.
