The eponymous Spaniard--actually a Britisher of Spanish heritage--is Basil Dignam, falsely convicted of murder. As he is led away, Dignam places a curse on the heads of his judge (Michael Hordern) and jury. Two of the jurors die mysteriously. The notion that Dignam may be orchestrating these deaths from behind bars is squelched when the prisoner himself kicks off. Hordern and his daughter Susan Beaumont play detective to solve the mystery. The Spaniard's Curse is adapted from a novel by Edith Pargiter.
