Malayalam Movie Download The Hat Box Mystery
Susan Hart, assistant to private detective Russ Ashton, is given a camera concealed in a hat box and assigned to take a picture of a woman. A gun is accidentally hidden in the box and the woman is killed. Susan is charged with murder, but Russ and his less-than-useful
associate, Harvard, get on the case and prove that the fatal shot was fired by the killer from across the street. Obviously this was a programmer made to fill out a double bill in theatres. Robert Lippert, the producer, made a career of it. The film itself
features the capable Tom Neal and Allen Jenkins in an otherwise no-name cast. It's a flat-footed mystery with Neal in charge of his low-rent yet financially strapped detective agency (is there EVER a movie featuring a detective agency that actually makes money?)
He gets a job investigating a caper that involves killing someone with, yes you guessed it, a hat box (tricked-out with a gun inside). It's such a short film at 44 minutes that it barely qualifies as a feature and, if made a few years later, would have been
an episode of a TV mystery show most likely. Aside from an opening gag involving an out-of-work phone that is funny, the only thing of note is the prologue wherein the actors introduce themselves and the characters they are about to play. An odd thing and
possibly the only time it's been done on film (there has been end-of-film bits where the actors bow or are presented by a voice over, but I don't know of another where actors come out at the start to announce themselves). At UNDER 44 minutes, you wonder if
this movie was severely edited down to this length. After all, B-movies ran from 55-65 minutes on average and 44 is amazingly short...too short.
"The Hat Box Mystery" is from Lippert Productions. When I saw that, I knew that the film couldn't be very good as all the Lippert movies I've seen have been simply terrible. Perhaps being short is a blessing!!
Surprisingly, the story does start off very well. During the opening credits, the film suddenly switches to the four leading characters who have broken character! Tom Neal introduces himself and the others and then talks to the audience...and then the credits continue. This is pretty clever. The story that follows isn't.
Russ (Nea)l and his sidekick, Harvard (Allan Jenkins), run a failing detective agency. When they are out of the office, their dopey secretary takes a case all on her own...an incredibly suspicious case where a man in obvious disguise gives her a camera hidden in a hatbox and instructs her on how to use it to take a picture of his cheating wife. Not surprisingly, he then rigged it up to a gun and when the dopey lady snaps the picture, she appears to shoot the lady in question. Oops. So, it's up to Russ and Harvard to figure out what really happened.
As I already said, since the production is by Lippert it was practically guaranteed to be sub-par...which it was. Fortunately, being short and having a few good moments, it's an inoffensive time-passer...albeit a seriously silly one considering the plot and occasionally bad writing.
