    Please Help Identify This Murder Mystery

    Both The Chinese Cat (1944) and Scared Stiff (1945) have a chess piece as a major clue for their mysteries. I’ve seen the former but not the latter; could one of those be it?

    Hi, everyone— Just bumping this. None of the stations ever got back to me, for better or worse. Anyone interested? Have some more information? Thanks.

    Title for an old horror film

    I’m sure you’re right; it’s just that we’ve fairly exhausted options for talkies. There were a few experts on the Monster Kid Classic Horror Forum, and they’d never heard of it. On the other hand, the OP couldn’t remember for sure what language it was in (though he thought English), so I suppose that goes to suggest there was dialogue.

    Question, though: could it be Rex Ingram’s The Magician (1926)?

    Anyway, Hitchcock’s The Manxman (’29) is available in its entirety here. https://ok.ru/video/290212809294

    Title for an old horror film

    @MovieCollectorOH Not ruling anything out, and I’ll check them out (and hope that he does), but I’d be shocked if, in the plot synopses, there were no mention of such important elements as gypsies, a tower, or hypnotism.

    Title for an old horror film

    Thanks, @MovieCollectorOH. I’ve just now checked those, and neither really seems to align with what @mattspease wrote, which only makes me think more that he’s conflating two (or more) different movies. Indeed, that would have to be, if he definitely remembers it on TCM, unless “his” movie happened to be in that ’98-’99 gap, correct?

    Any news here, @MovieCollectorOH (or anyone else)?

    Title for an old horror film

    Yeah, @MovieCollectorOH, there always seem to be a few apparently insoluble ones that pique my interest—damn that Sleuth singer! While I now lean towards @mattspease’s having conflated two or more movies, as I said, I could be wrong, and I’d be happy to be wrong; I’d very much like him to find “his” movie. Thanks very much for offering to look again, though I’m sorry to hear that it’s missing a year and a half! I’ll be happy to help if I can do anything.

    Title for an old horror film

    Bumping this thread, as I tried to help @mattspease with this question on the Classic Horror Film Board. I see that Matt reached out to @MovieCollectorOH on the thread that @scsu1975 recommended, but I don’t think MovieCollection responded (unless it was in a PM?). Neither I not anyone on the CHFB was able to find it; we eventually came to the conclusion that it was possibly a conflation of Caravan ’46 and Uncle Silas ’47 (or possibly an adaptation of Svengali), but we could be wrong. This one greatly intrigued me.

    Thanks, Arsan. Both I and someone else on IMDb v2.0 have reached out to Warner Bros. Publishing, and they never responded to either one of us, unfortunately. I'll look into that, thanks. By the way, the station in Boston never responded to e-mails or calls, so they're out. I don't have much time to devote to this now, but I can see if a station in New York can help. Thanks again, guys!

    Slayton, I live in Massachusetts, and I've reached out to MassJazz. If they're unsuccessful, I may try a station in New York. Many thanks.

    Singer in "Sleuth"

    MovieCollector, I (and others who have looked into this mystery before) have considered Bowlly for a long, long time, and we sent the Sleuth clip to a music professor who's an expert on Bowlly. He actually wrote back to say that (1) that it's not Bowlly, (2) that it may be someone copying Bowlly's (and Frank Luther's) style, and (3) that it is most likely not from the '30s but rather made for the moving, imitating the '30s style. Still, many thanks for the interest and the help!

    I've sent several e-mails off to music boards and companies, to no avail thus far. Just to let everyone here know...

    Thanks for the help, Slaytonf. I'll definitely try to reach out to a few of those sites/stations. I'd just like to have this solved at long last. Thanks again.
