The Bishop Murder Case 1929

It's a pretty serious thing, sez we, when even Mother Goose gets dragged into a murder mystery. Nothing's sacred, that's all. "The Bishop Murder Case" is another one of those "guess who did it?" affairs. Since it comes from another studio, Basil Rathbone is Philo Vance, the "detectif," instead of William Powell. It is well produced and well acted. You'll get some shivers.

Photoplay February 1930
