Morning Call

Also known as “The Strange Case of Dr. Manning” in the U.S.A., this is a 1957 British film about the kidnapping of a doctor married to woman from a rich family. An American detective (played by an Aussie) is brought in on the case, and along with Scotland Yard’s finest, they sleuth out the kidnapper.

So the story is pretty simple, and not overly exciting. But the acting is fine, and the ending was a little unexpected with the doctor discovered dead, but they caught the kidnapper/murderer of course.

There is very little about this on the interwebs. The lead actress was played by Greta Gynt, a Norwegian actress who had a reasonably long career.

Quite forgettable, but it passed 75 minutes away quite painlessly.
