    The Unguarded Hour

    ★★★

    Franchot Tone and Loretta Young star as a titled English couple whose happy life is jeopardized when Henry Danielle blackmails Young for love letters that an infatuated college-age Tone wrote to older woman Aileen Pringle. When Pringle is murdered, Tone is the main suspect and must try to clear himself.

    A well done mystery/drama; a filmed play, the action is restricted by adherence to its origins. Tone and Young are supported by first class actors Roland Young, Lewis Stone, Jesse Ralph, Dudley Digges, and Danielle.

    A well written and nicely acted combination of ghost story and mystery. Cornelia Otis Skinner has a showy part as a strangely protective old friend of the deceased woman.
