Someone at the Door is a 1950 British crime comedy film directed by Francis Searle and starring Michael Medwin, Garry Marsh and Yvonne Owen.[2]

Basis

The film was based on a hit West End play by Campbell Christie and his wife Dorothy, which had previously been turned into a film in 1936.[3][4][5]

Plot

A journalist comes up with a scheme to boost his career by inventing a fake murder but soon becomes embroiled in trouble when a real killing takes place.

Cast

Critical reception

The Radio Times wrote, "this is Hammer hokum of the hoariest kind. There isn't a semblance of suspense...Not even the arrival of jewel thieves at the haunted house...can revive one's fast-fading interest. However, there is one good wheeze, during the credit sequence, when director Francis Searle reveals that the front of the old house is merely a flat piece of scenery erected in a field";[5] and Fantastic Movie Musings & Ramblings concluded, "it isn't much of a movie, but if you take it for what it is (a late-period old dark house variant based on a stage play), it has its uses. There are a few mildly amusing jokes and a couple of decent plot twists, which is more than some examples of this genre have."[6]
