A solid script by John Guillermin bolsters the otherwise so-so British filler Melody in the Dark. Eunice Gayson plays an actress who inherits a forbidding old mansion. Using her new domicile as a rehearsal hall for herself and her fellow thespians, Eunice is scared out of her wits by mysterious sounds emanating from nowhere. There's a logical explanation, of course, but try telling that to the cast during the film's first five reels. Musical relief is provided by such home-grown acts as The Keynotes, The Stardusters and The London Lovelies.
