Meet The Inspector!
After successfully introducing Hildegarde Withers on our show a few weeks ago, we're pleased as can be to dig up even a more rare cinema sleuth for your entertainment and enjoyment.
Inspector Hornleigh Investigates was a BBC radio series of the late 1930s, and its popularity led to a trio of film adaptations, of which Inspector Hornleigh was the first.
Her Royal Majesty's Government is targeted by thieves, and their plot is tied to a murder Hornleigh is investigating. Gordon Harker is the Inspector; Alastair Sim is his sidekick in crimesolving, and our fine supporting cast includes Hugh Williams and Wally Patch.
