Quicky followup to GREEN FOR DANGER
25 November 2002 | by gmonescuSee all my reviews

This film was apparently made to capitalize on the success of GREEN FOR DANGER, the classic 1946 whodunit film based on the novel by Christianna Brand. DEATH IN HIGH HEELS, based on Brand's first novel, while not up to the standard of the other film in any department, is not without interest, especially to lovers of Golden Age detective fiction. And while the "surprise" denoument is not difficult to predict, the film (at 48 minutes) hardly outstays it welcome.
