The Westland Case is a 1937 American mystery film directed by Christy Cabanne and starring Preston Foster, Frank Jenks, and Carol Hughes.



In 1937, Universal Pictures made a deal with the Crime Club who published whodunnit novels.[2] Universal were granted the right to select four of their yearly published novels to adapt into films.[2] The unit responsible for these films was producer Irving Starr.[2] Eleven films were made in the series between 1937 and 1939.[3] The Westland Case was the first in the series and was based on the Jonathan Latimer novel Headed for a Hearse.[4]

The first films in the series featured Preston Foster as Bill Crane and Frank Jenks as Doc Williams were cast as the wisecracking New York city detectives.[4] These characters would appear in two other films in the series: The Lady in the Morgue and The Last Warning.[4][5]


The Westland Case was released on October 31, 1937.[4]
