(a.k.a. THE DOOR WITH SEVEN LOCKS)

Strange events surround the death of a rich man and his burial with his jewels in a tomb with a door with seven locks.

I find this Edgar Wallace mystery interesting enough, though sometimes a little confusing, and I'm not yet quite sure if the whole story hangs together. There is an entertaining array of characters involved in the story, but it is one of those that may require a checklist to keep everyone straight. Leslie Banks plays the evil Dr. Manetti, and when he gives a tour of the items in his collection of torture items, you have a pretty good idea of where the last scenes of the movie will be taking place. It's worth a watch, though it does get a little too cute at times and a little dull at others.
