I LOVE A MYSTERY - THE COMPLETE MOVIE SERIES
I LOVE A MYSTERY - 3 MOVIES BASED ON THE POPULAR RADIO PROGRAM
This brand new and improved set of suspense are the best quality available for this series ANYWHERE. Quality is a good 8.5 to 9 (I hate to ever rate anything that high but most collectors will feel it is more a 9). The radio series was popular in the 40’s and they finally produced three movies featuring the same stars and same characters. This is a real find for mystery buffs. DON’T MISS IT!!!!
I LOVE A MYSTERY
Based on Phillips Lord's popular radio serial, I Love a Mystery centers around the exploits of two pugnacious private eyes (marked down from the radio version's three heroes). The adventuresome Jack Packard (Jack Bannon) and Doc Long (Barton Yarborough) are hired by a nervous socialite (George Macready), who lives in mortal fear of being decapitated. The man has been the recipient of strange, cryptic messages from an Oriental secret society, which predict his impending doom. The brains behind the society is the man's duplicitous wife (Nina Foch), who hopes to goad her husband into suicide and thus fall heir to his millions. A grisly little item, I Love a Mystery was the first of three "B" pictures inspired by the radio original.
THE DEVIL’S MASK
This entry in the short "I Love a Mystery" series has detective Jack Packard and his sidekick Doc Young investigating the identity of a shrunken head that was discovered in a downed cargo plane. The head was one of four others discovered in the wreckage. It was notable as having belonged to a red-haired white man believed to be a missing explorer. The two sleuths are hired by the explorer's daughter who has them follow her mother and her father's associate. The detectives soon reveal that the murderer was a taxidermist on the expedition.
The Unknown was the last of three programmers based on the legendary radio series I Love a Mystery. Carried over from the radio version are Jim Bannon and Barton Yarborough as Jack Packard and Barton Yarborough, adventurers for hire. The plot concerns the efforts of amnesiac Nina Arnold (Jeff Donnell) to claim her rightful share of her domineering grandmother's legacy. Someone is trying to murder Nina, and that someone may very well be her emotionally unstable mother Rachel Martin (Karen Morley). But with Jack and Doc on the case, Nina has nothing to worry about-or does she? Like the other entries in the I Love a Mystery film series, The Unknown is based on a radio serial by Carleton E. Morse, creator of the original property
