"First of all the price is right. You get 4 movies for the price of 1..!
1. Kennel Murder Case....this is a Philo Vance Mystery starring William Powell. The plot is about a man who is killed in a locked room. Police rule suicide but with Philo Vance on the case the real truth comes out. This one is a 5 star mystery. Good print and sound.
2. Eyes In The Night....Edward Arnold plays a blind detective involved in murder with a "sidekick" to do the dirty work and a dog as a companion. This one also a 5 star mystery. Good print and sound.
3. The Limping Man....this one is about murder and smuggling in London. This one is a 3 star movie. I liked it but it is not an award winner. A British film so that will tell you something of the "style". Good print and sound.
4. The Spy In White.....stars James Mason as a British officer who gets into a fight over a girl in the officer's club. Unfortunately, the other man is a Turkish Prince. Mason is forced to resign and is offered a job as a tobacco executive in Turkey. This is where the movie goes downhill. I thought the story/plot was BAD..!!.......so-so print quality and sound...this one at best a 2 star movie....my rating is 1 star..!
If nothing else...buy this set for the first two movies and you'll have a real bargain."

"I bought this DVD for William Powell and the Kennel Club Murder but it's Edward Arnold in Eyes in the Night that I really enjoy. The quality of that movie, both picture and sound, is excellent. Kennel Club Murders isn't quite as crisp but it's William Powell; you make do. I haven't gotten to the other two."

"I bought this for the Kennel Club Murder, which was worth the price by itself. I haven't watched one of the movies yet, but the other 2 were one quite worth watching if a bit corny, and the other that I ended up wishing I had not watched. There are no sub-titles, though the sound was decent; picture quality was also good for films of this age - I don't remember noticing any problems there."
Worth the price

"The emphasis on William Powell leads you to believe that they are all Powell movies. There is only one, Kennel Club. The others are good flicks and worth the few bucks but they are also available on other collections."
