DEAD MANS CHEST

The British Dead Man's Chest comes to us from Merton Park Productions, the folks responsible for the long-running "Edgar Wallace" B-series. The story bears a striking resemblance to Fritz Lang's 1956 thriller Beyond Reasonable Doubt. To prove the fallability of circumstantial evidence, reporter John Thaw fakes the murder of a colleague. He then plants all the clues to point to himself. So just guess who really dies, leaving Thaw in the lurch?

RICOCHET

Solicitor Alan Phipps formulates a plan to blackmail his wealthy and unfaithful wife, Yvonne, and at the same time, get revenge against her boyfriend, John Brodie, by setting him up to appear that he is the blackmailer and for Yvonne to kill him.

THE DOUBLE

In this mystery, two friends go to Africa, but only one returns. That one, believing his partner dead, assumes his pal's identity in hope of getting his inheritance. Meanwhile, back in Africa, the true heir survives. He is paralyzed from the waist down, and suffers amnesia, but he lives. A lady friend returns him to England. When the imposter discovers that the heir is still alive, he plots his death. Unfortunately, it is he who is killed.
