A good little 1940's b-movie mystery
13 February 2002 | by hmpulhamSee all my reviews

This was a good "who done it?" that despite a small budget, was, none the less, very entertaining. Set as a group sorority vacation in the mountains, the plot centers on a hated girl who is murdered, and then one of her sorority sisters turns detective to find the killer. The cast was first rate, and the film was well directed.
