Ethelred, The Pilgrims of Peace, and Death on a Train
Normally a king or queen of the British Empire serves once, from the time of crowning until the day of death. One king served twice. Ethelred the Unready became king from 978 to 1013 and spent most of his time unsuccessfully fighting invading Vikings. After great losses, Ethelred fled to Normandy and victorious Danish King Sweyn ruled England. Unfortunately, Sweyn died within a year of becoming King of England, and Ethelred returned to the throne.
History remembered Ethelred as the ‘Unready’ king, a bumbling leader who couldn’t protect the Empire. At the beginning of this murder adventure, actor Edmund Lowe is referred to by the hotel desk clerk, and later by the female co-star as ‘Ethelred,’ meaning that he was a foolish man who couldn’t get the job done. If you are interested in movie errors, watch for a note written by detective John Harwood to the French inspector. The note is signed ‘Ed’ for Edward Lowe, the actor playing John Harwood.
Constance Cummings, the female co-star in this adventure, was born in Seattle, Washington. When her parents separated, her mother took her to Manhattan and got a job selling china in Wanamaker’s department store. Her mother did this so that Constance, who loved to dance, could try to become a Broadway dancer and/or actress. After a glowing review of her in the play ‘June Moon,’ Hollywood took notice and she began acting in motion pictures. She would meet and marry screenwriter Benn Levy.
Her husband was from England, and they soon returned to England and a 600-acre dairy farm in the village of Cote, Oxfordshire. She would continue to act in motion pictures like this one, and on stage, where she won a Tony award in 1978 for her performance in ‘Wings.’
In this adventure she is a determined insurance investigator assigned to partner with an American private detective to resolve a jewelry heist in England. Unfortunately, she meets him in Nice, France during the Mardi Gras Carnival, and the discovery of a dead body in the hotel will plunge them both into a mystery that will take them to England and Paris and beyond, in search of an elusive killer. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
