The Claydon Treasure Mystery is a 1938 film directed by H. Manning Haynes and starring John Stuart, Garry Marsh and Evelyn Ankers.[2] Murder at a large old manor house attracts the attentions of a mystery writer. It was made at Wembley Studios as a quota quickie by the British subsidiary of 20th Century Fox.[3]


Lady Caroline (Annie Esmond) invites engineer and part-time crime writer Peter Kerrigan (John Stuart) to Marsh Manor to solve a murder. Is the mysterious death of a librarian connected with the Claydon treasure, reputedly hidden on the estate a century earlier?
