CANDLES AT NINE*
(1944) Jesse Matthews, John Stuart, Beatrix Lehmann. A tad long-winded, but overall this is a fairly enjoyable, sometimes creepy British mystery thriller. Much of the action is centered about a spooky estate where a singer is forced to spend the night in order to claim her inheritance. The film’s highlight is Lehman, who turns in one of the best-ever performances as a sinister housekeeper, even better than Harriet White in the Dr. Hichcock films. Matthew's last starring role. Plays like a horror film in spots. 16mm.
