Critic Reviews for The List of Adrian Messenger
An even more damaging miscue is the utilization of stars who are hidden behind facial disguises in fundamentally inconsequential roles.
Saddled with an incredibly creaky whodunit plot, this thriller should really have been set in Victorian times to accommodate its villain with a passion for disguises, its Holmesian detective in a bowler hat, its murder in a fog-bound Limehouse.
A captivating murder mystery, and although the viewer finds out fairly early on who the killer is, the mystery of his motive and the suspense of his capture are sufficient to keep one glued to the screen.
Audience Reviews for The List of Adrian Messenger
great mystery, unusual costuming of great movie stars ends with naming of the protagonists. won't be many movies like this b
A who done it about a crafty murderer who resorts to disguises to eliminate nearly a dozen people. A writer named Adrian Messenger (John Merivale) believes a series of apparently unrelated "accidental" deaths are actually linked murders. He asks his friend Anthony Gethryn (George C. Scott), recently retired from MI5, to help clear up the mystery The plot's routine in conception and excecution, but the fun here is to see if you can spot some stellar names--- Kirk Douglas, Robert Mitchum, Tony Curtis, Burt Lancaster, Frank Sinatra. All these folks made up in funny faces. Should provide a good time to mystery buffs.
