The Spaniard's Curse is a 1958 British drama film directed by Ralph Kemplen and starring Tony Wright, Lee Patterson, Michael Hordern, Susan Beaumont and Henry Oscar.[1][2]


Guy Stevenson (Basil Dignam) is a British man of Spanish heritage wrongly convicted of murder. On being given the death sentence, he places a curse on the judge (Michael Hordern) and jury. Two of the jurors then die mysteriously, and suspicion falls on Stevenson, but he himself also dies. The judge and his niece Margaret attempt to solve the mystery and uncover the real killer.


Critical reception

TV Guide called the film "an interesting murder mystery but one which never really delivers what it promises."[3] The Radio Times wrote, "Tony Wright has the most colourful part as the judge's wayward son, a crime reporter, but Michael Hordern as the judge gives the sharpest performance. It's the only film directed by top editor Ralph Kemplen, who wisely returned to his real talent, cutting Room at the Top, Oliver! and others".[4]
