John Warwick

Directed by George King

Runtime: 81 min.

Genre: mystery

Print Quality: B



"Mark's Priory". the family seat of the Lebanons, is a house of terror to

Ilsa Crane, secretary and niece of Lady Lebanon. The strange behavior of

two sinister butlers, Gilder and Brooks, adds greatly to her fear and her

sole consolation lies in the sympathy extended her by young Lord William

"Willie" Lebanon. A young architect, Richard Ferraby, arrives from London

to inspect the ancient home in regards to renovations, and he and Isla

are immediately attracted to each other. Lady Lebanon tells her son that

he must marry Isla to carry on the family name but Lord Willie tells her he

has no intentions of marrying. Later, the family physician, Dr. Amersham,

arrives and it is evident he has some unrevealed hold over Lady

Lebanon. The chauffeur, Studd, hints that he knew Aversham in India and

that Aversham was discharged from the Indian Army under unsavory

circumstances. Isla and Richard find the chauffeur murdered and the

suspicion falls on the gamekeeper, Tilling, whose wife had been more

than a little friendly with Studd. But Chief Inspector Tanner and Deputy

Sergeant Totty arrive from Scotland Yard and uncover evidence that

points to Dr. Aversham as the killer, and Lord Willie substantiates the clue

by telling them that Aversham had strangled a young Eurasian girl in India

by using a red scarf and Studd, also, had been found strangled with a red

scarf. The policeman are just about to fold up their tidy little case when a

telegram arrives from "Mark's Priory" informing them that Aversham has

just been found murdered---strangled with a red scarf. Well, back to the

old drawing board.
