When Vera has her day in court, she initially refuses to testify. But eventually her reason for pulling the trigger – and the mystery of Michael’s identity – is revealed.
Terror by Night (1946) Roy William Neill, Basil Rathbone, Nigel Bruce, Alan Mowbray, Mystery, Thriller
The penultimate entry in Universal’s Sherlock Holmes series, Terror by Night takes place almost exclusively on a speeding train, en route from London to Edinburgh. Holmes (Basil Rathbone) is on board to protect a valuable diamond from the clutches of master criminal Colonel Sebastian Moran. The trouble is, Moran is a master of disguise, and could be just about any one of the other passengers. Murder and mayhem plague the train excursion before Holmes can successfully complete his mention. Poor old Dr. Watson (Nigel Bruce) is a bit denser than usual here, though his ingenuousness is cleverly woven into the script. Alan Mowbray, who played Inspector Lestrade in the 1932 Clive Brook adaptation of Sherlock Holmes, is seen in a pivotal supporting role.
