Movie Info

In this film based on S.S. Van Dine's detective novel, quick-witted private investigator Philo Vance (Basil Rathbone) is in search of a cryptic killer. The body of Joseph Cochrane Robin is discovered pierced by an arrow, with a note that contains a snippet of the nursery rhyme "Who Killed Cock Robin," which is curiously signed "The Bishop." Vance is on the case, but the pressure to uncover the Bishop's identity heats up when more bodies begin to turn up with nursery rhymes attached.
