Kennel Murder Case (1933)

William Powell, Mary Astor
Michael Curtiz
William Powell stars as detective Philo Vance in this suspenseful locked­room murder mystery. Along with a lot of head­scratching clues, there’s plenty of fun stuff about stuffy art collectors, plus... there’s a beautiful debutante trapped in a house of hate...A glamorous stage star keeping a tryst with a "dead" man...A corpse walking upstairs to commit suicide...And a wounded dog that knows the answer to the most inexplicable mystery ever tackled by the most captivating sleuth since Sherlock Holmes! Oscar winning Director Michael Curtiz (Casablanca) spins a tale that is absolutely guess­-proof! (BW)
