1936 British comedy film.

Someone At The Door

Someone At The Door

When Sally inherits a country house, her young brother Ronald, an aspiring journalist, hits on a sensational way to make his first big scoop: Sally will 'disappear', and he will be arrested for her murder! At his trial she will reappear, his acquittal will follow, and he will be able to supply his paper with an exclusive story. Sally and her fiancé, Bill, fall in with the scheme. However, there are complications which they had not foreseen...

This humorous thriller was among several thirties films featuring Aileen Marson, a tragically short-lived British actress whose career briefly flourished on both sides of the Atlantic. Marson's co-stars include impeccable comedic actor and singer Billy Milton, and veteran screen villain Noah Beery; the film is directed by leading silent-era director/actor/writer Herbert Brenon - nominated for Best Director at the very first Academy Awards ceremony in 1927.

Someone At The Door is presented here in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements, in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.
