Who? times two
Annie Van Auken | Planet Earth | 08/11/2008
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This ALPHA VIDEO double feature consists of 'B' grade "whodunit" programmers from Hollywood's golden age of limburger.


THE HAT BOX MYSTERY-- A private eye's Girl Friday is given a camera hidden in a hatbox so she can secretly snap a woman's picture. When the target is killed by a gun stashed in the same box, the unwitting photog becomes prime suspect in a murder case.

HOLLYWOOD MYSTERY-- A real gangster is hired to play the heavy in a crime film, but no one at the studio is aware that a different thug is out to kill him.

The TOD SLAUGHTER TRIPLE FEATURE (from JEF FILMS) stars the famous British scenery-chewer in three of his best-known films.
