The Kennel Murder Case is a 1933 mystery yarn about the death of the wealthy Archer Coe (Robert Barrat), found dead in his locked bedroom, and ruled a suicide by the authorities. Philo Vance (William Powell), debonair amateur sleuth, enters the picture and decides that Coe died by more sinister means, taking it upon himself to aid the bumbling police. Not only does he discover that Coe's brother has been slain as well, but that that there are a host of bitter enemies that wanted to see Coe dead. Prime suspects include Coe's niece Hilda (Mary Astor), denied her inheritance, his personal secretary Raymond (Frank Conroy) and his neighbor Doris (Helen Vinson), who had been having a clandestine affair with the dead man. Will the brilliant Philo Vance be able to piece together who killed Coe from a seemingly endless supply of suspects? The Kennel Murder Case is based on a story by S. S. Van Dine and was directed by Michael Curtiz, best known as the director of the classic film "Casablanca."moreless
