The Mystery of the 13th Guest (5-Nov-1943)

Director: William Beaudine

Writers: Tim Ryan; Charles R. Marion; Arthur Hoerl

From novel: The 13th Guest by Armitage Trail

Producer: Lindsley Parsons

Keywords: Mystery

Thirteen guests from a dinner party thirteen years ago reunite at their ancestral home to see a girl, now 21, open her grandfather's last will and testament. Most of the family are awful people who hate each other; the granddaughter ends up dead almost immediately, or so it seems. Others who attended start dying as well. Preposterous mystery with humor added ineptly. Remake of The Thirteenth Guest (1932).
