The Mysterious Miss X

Directed by Gus Meins
1939    65m    Not Rated
Mystery, Comedy, Crime,
Keith Neville and Dan Casey, two small-time stage actors, are traveling by bus back to New York City, and have an overnight stay in a small town. They take a room in a local hotel and a murder is committed in an adjoining room to Keith. The latter hears the gunfire, goes to investigate, and is there when the local police arrive. He and Casey are both held on suspicion of murder and jailed. While a local policeman is going through their luggage at the hotel, he discovers a letter of introduction, in Keith's suitcase, that reads: "It is requested that all official courtesy be extended to Mr. Geoffrey Desmond, Chief Inspector of the Criminal Investigation Department of the London Matropolitan Police, during his journey on a dangerous secret mission." The letter is a stage-prop from the play the two actors had just performed in, but the Police Chief thinks it is real and releases them from jail, and Keith decides to stay on and help the local bobbies solve the murder. He has a vested interest in doing so as Julie Graham, a girl he met on the bus-trip, is the daughter of the a man the District Attorney has now charged with the crime, and Keith stays to help her clear her father of the charges.
