The Echo Murders

1945

Blake journeys to Cornwall to investigate why are so many people being killed over a supposedly worthless tin mine.

Quite enjoyable wartime thriller, the second to star Farrar as Blake. Obviously low-budget, but benefits from a good cast and some low-key humor. Too bad the available copies are of such poor quality!

Noel Dainton is credited as Van Schuster, but it is cleartly not him playing the role.
