Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Ask Beccles, a fast-moving British stage farce by Cyril Campion and Edward Dignon, was transferred to the screen in 1933. Garry Marsh plays Beccles, a highly respected business consultant who, in a moment of weakness, turns to crime. Beccles steals a valuable diamond, and for a while congratulates himself for getting away scot free. But when an innocent man is arrested for the crime, the guilt-ridden Beccles plots to return the gem-without, of course, implicating himself. Ask Beccles was released in the US by Paramount Pictures.
