Another of the long-running Merton Park "Edgar Wallace" series, the plot of the British Accidental Death is motivated by revenge. Someone wants to kill the male "protector" of toothsome Jacqueline Ellis in retribution for crimes against society committed during the war. Director George Nethercott stages the film from the mysterious murderer's point of view, allowing us to follow each step of his (or her?) meticulously plotted scheme. The crime is staged to look like an accident, but the truth will come out, as it always does. Accidental Death was based on Edgar Wallace's story "Jack O' Judgement."
