Early study of psychology and murder
25 October 2002 | by john4filmsSee all my reviews

Short containing a psychology lesson with a whodunit crime story. Interesting because of the time in which it was made, 1944, when psychology wasn't given much credibility. Not a great film, but competent and historically interesting.
