It’s London, 1888. On the third night of the Jack the Ripper killings, a man rents out an attic from an older couple in need of extra income. The man (Jack Palance), a research pathologist, begins working on his experiments in the rooms. Helen Harley, the landlady (Frances Bavier), becomes suspicious of the man, especially when her niece shows an interest in him.
Tim McCoy plays a hired gunman Rancher Morgan hired in response to a range war. The leading lady was a woman named Rosalinda Price. It was her only movie.
This movie stars Dennis O’Keefe and Gail Russell. It’s the true story about Dan Patch, who held the record for being the fastest harness horse in the world from 1909 to 1938.
It was a good try, but this movie with no Peter Sellers just can’t compare to the Peter Sellers ones. It’s hard to make that comparison because in it’s own right this is a less than average comedy. I remember watching it in the theater.
