Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Troubleshooting Warner Bros. director William McGann was dispatched to Warner's British-cousin Teddington Studios to helm Murder on the Second Floor. John Longden heads the cast as an aspiring British writer who utilizes his boarding-house neighbors in a fictional murder story. Fiction, of course, soon becomes fact when one of the boarders is knocked off. Casting himself as a detective, Longden gets in over his head when he attempts to solve the mystery. Murder on the Second Floor was based on the gimmicky stage play by Frank Vosper.
