Murder! ★★★

Diana Baring (Norah Baring), an actress, is convicted of the murder of a fellow actress and sentenced to death. Sir John Menier (Herbert Marshall), who was on the jury and regrets his vote, investigates the crime in order to establish Diana’s innocence and identify the actual murderer.

Alfred Hitchcock’s third talkie, a murder mystery, adheres closely to the stage play from which it was adapted. Fairly well acted by Herbert Marshall and Edward Chapman, but slow moving with an overabundance of talk and a strong racist element.
