Reviews:

Quite a decent murder mystery, if dated…
The main reason to watch this movie now, for me – and I guess most – is for John Mills, as the firm but fair Scotland Yard Inspector Detective, who has to solve a couple of murders of young women in a sleepy Home Counties town in England.

It’s all about the rather sermonising 1950’s “respectable” folk who wag their fingers at a local beauty – a Marilyn Monroe (sort of) lookalike who carries on with married men and flaunts her curvy figure at the local snobbish Sports Club, the elitism of which extends beyond their usual, especially as the membership secretary is a fan of hers….

One night, she is strangled and of course, a whole array of the obvious candidates spring up, some red herrings and some real. Charles Coburn as a disgraced GP and Derek Farr who has more business fingers in more pies than are reasonable are two of the more recognisable stars that come under the Inspector’s radar.

The film is well enough made, the story complex enough to satisfy the average amateur sleuth and John Mills is sturdy, even if his ‘romance’ with one of the deceased young friends is both awkward and frankly, ridiculous. There’s also a pretty meaty and suspenseful ending, that Hitchcock himself might have come up with.

Cosy British murder mystery
TOWN ON TRIAL is a cosy British murder mystery of the 1950s which has a greater emphasis on characterisation than most. It reminded me of Agatha Christie a little. The story sees John Mills playing a dogged detective on the hunt for a killer with a penchant for strangling young women. A various well-to-do crowd are responsible, and one of half a dozen male suspects is responsible, but which? This film plays out in a slow and dated fashion, not particularly suspenseful, and only really picking up for a lively climax, but a solid cast keep you watching. I was particularly entertained to see Alec McCowen, famous for playing the detective in FRENZY, in a youthful role and there are turns from the likes of Dennis Price, Raymond Huntley and Harry Fowler.
