Grand Central Murder

Choo on this old-fashioned murder mystery.


Thriller

Rod Lott
As a showgirl, Mida King (Patricia Dane, Rio Rita) is likely used to lecherous comments and unwanted advances, but death threats are another story — this story, in fact.

While the Patient Slept

No catching Zs during this zing-filled mystery.


Thriller

Rod Lott
All the way back from 1935, While the Patient Slept begins with a logo stating it's a Clue Club Picture. Was that a regular picture-show "thing"? The Clue Club? Because if it was, I would've been a faithful follower, just based upon this good-natured mystery, recently released by Warner Archive.

The Mystery of Edwin Drood

What the Dickens? Murder, of course.


Thriller

Rod Lott
It's not often one sees the credit "completed by" in a film or TV series, but not many never-finished novels are even considered worthy of adapting to screen. However, most authors aren't the legendary Charles Dickens.

Fast Company / Fast and Loose / Fast and Furious

We detect a book-smart mystery series.


Comedy

Rod Lott
In tacking the word “fast” onto each of these three comedy-minded mysteries, MGM wasn’t joking. Not only are the running times of the films brief, but its lead characters rattle through their dialogue like a teenager to pizza.
