Spiel mit dem Tode: Directed by John Farrow. With Ray Milland, Charles Laughton, Maureen O’Sullivan, George Macready. A magazine tycoon commits a murder and pins it on an innocent man, who then tries to solve the murder himself.

“An interesting film noir. Milland is good as a Hitchcockian hero who finds himself framed for a murder. Laughton seems to be sleepwalking through his role as the actual murderer. Johnson, an attractive actress who had her career cut short by an accident and had a short and tragic life, plays the murder victim. Farrow (Miau0026#39;s dad) is no Hitchcock but he directs efficiently and the cast includes Ou0026#39;Sullivan (Miau0026#39;s mom) as Millandu0026#39;s nagging wife and Morgan as a menacing henchman. Lanchester (Laughtonu0026#39;s real life wife) is hilarious as an eccentric artist. After a slow start, the pace picks up and suspense builds, not letting up until the credits roll.”
