Movie Info

Philip Godfrey's Gothic novel The Grange Mystery was the basis for the British melodrama The Black Abbott. John Stuart heads a gang of crooks who break into the home of British nobleman Richard Cooper. The plan is to hold Cooper for ransom in his own home, but to make it seem as though everything is normal. But the resourceful Cooper proves to be quite a handful for the allegedly clever criminals. Featured as a secondary kidnaper is American actor Ben Welden, later a mainstay of the Superman television series. The Black Abbot was distributed by the British arm of Hollywood's RKO Radio Pictures.
