The old bromide about a group of avaricious heirs waiting for an old millionaire to die is trotted out in Grissly's Millions. A coterie of disreputable-looking heirs are gathered in the home of the wealthy man (Robert H. Barrat). A murder is committed, and all present fall under suspicion, including stars Paul Kelly and Virginia Grey (both of whom had been "hidden killers" in previous mystery movies, so the audience is kept guessing). Directed by western specialist John English, Grissly's Millions goes through its familiar paces at a fast clip, with a few unexpected twists along the way. The biggest "mystery," however, is why Republic Pictures would choose that unappealing title!
