'The Skin Game' (1931), based on John Galsworthy's popular stage play, was decidedly atypical of the Master's subsequent suspensers. The aristocratic patriarch of one of two rival families resorts to blackmail to settle a dispute over land rights. Stars Edmund Gwenn, Jil Esmond and John Longden. 'Rich and Strange' (1932): Fred and Emily inherit a fortune and book a cruise. The trip tests the strength of their relationship and forces them to question whether the life of the very rich is for them. In 'Number Seventeen' (1932) a tramp joins a group of jewel thieves, a pretty girl and a detective in a search for a valuable stolen necklace. The search starts in a spooky house and leads to a cross country chase. With Anne Grey and John Stuart.
