Calling Philo Vance, 1940

First viewing.

My first foray into the Philo Vance murder mystery series. This is based on The Kennel Murder Case from 1930 that I could never get through even with William Powell as the lead. This version is updated for a setting on the verge of World War II. It’s not too bad a story as these things go. But I mostly liked the magical view-changing keyhole.
