Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })A comedy/mystery film from 1963, directed by William Castle. It is the second screen adaptation of Benighted by J.B. Priestley, albeit a much looser version than the 1932 film of the same name.Tom Penderel (Tom Poston), an American working in London as a car salesman, is asked by his flatmate Caspar Femm (Peter Bull), who's convinced that his life is in danger, to deliver a new convertible to his ancestral home in the Dartmoor countryside.There, Tom meets the rest of Caspar's eccentric family — including his twin brother, Jasper (Bull); his parents, Roderick (Robert Morley) and Agatha (Joyce Grenfell); his uncle, Potiphar (Mervyn Johns); his nieces, Cecily (Janette Scott) and Morgana (Fenella Fielding); and Morgana's father, Morgan (Danny Green) — and gets caught up in a murder mystery centered around the Femms' vast family fortune.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })
