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.
