The Belt, the Blinking Man and the Coppers

You cannot ask for more in a murder thriller than to watch the performances of young Derrick De Marney and Nova Pilbeam. Add to their performances the talents of legendary character actor Edward Rigby and you know that you are in for a treat . . . . Can it get any better than this? . . . . . Well . . . . Yes it can . . . . The director of this murder mystery is the king of goose bumps Alfred Hitchcock . . . . With camera angles that amaze, scenes laid out as only the master director could envision . . . . Including a fleeting close-up scene of flocking birds that he might remember in later years and create an entire thriller around . . . . Derrick De Marney is young Robert Tisdall, a screenwriter who wrote a story for movie star Christine Clay a few years ago, and now she wants him to write her another story. But before we learn this our murder thriller opens with the shouting voices of movie star Christine and a man who is arguing with her at the top of his voice. He angrily walks away into the stormy night . . . . And we Segway to the next morning where we see the dead body of Christine the movie star in the waves of the ocean as it laps the beach outside her home. Young Tisdall is on his way to visit her and write another story for her when he spots her body on the shore below. After he determines that she is dead, he rushes up the hillside for help. Next two young ladies on their way to a day in the sun come around the bend of the beach and spot the dead actress . . . . Then they look up the hillside and see the fleeing Tisdall . . . . The girls are certain that he must be the killer. The young man is soon arrested and questioned at length about the actress . . . . And it turns out that the gal has been strangled by a belt from a coat . . . . A coat belonging to the young Tisdall that he claims was stolen from him the night before . . . . On his way to face the judge Tisdall escapes and runs to the street, hiding in the back of an old car in front of the court house . . . . An old car driven by the young daughter of the Chief of Constables . . . . This leads to that and the young girl tries to help Tisdall evade the police and find his stolen overcoat . . . With classic Hitchcock cliffhangers along the way we finally reach the scene where we see the killer, and he is within reach. . . . But no one will spot him . . . No one will realize that the real killer is only a few steps away . . . . The Hitchcock camera angles will have the killer’s eyes fill the screen before us, but none of our characters will even have a clue that the killer is nearby . . . . Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
