Shadows in the Night was the third entry in Columbia's Crime Doctor series, starring Warner Baxter as crook-turned-criminologist Dr. Robert Ordway. Nina Foch delivers a superb performance as Lois Garland, a beautiful young heiress being driven to insanity and possible suicide. Poor Lois resides in a house seemingly festooned with malevolent ghosts; Ordway suspects that her tormentors are of the human variety. With George Zucco on hand as the sinister Frank Swift, can there be any doubt as to the identity of the perpetrator? Well, actually, there can, but it's best to see the film to find out for sure.
