Critic Reviews for The Garden Murder Case

All Critics (2)

Another Philo Vance entry with familiar MGM contract players, including Edmund Lowe as Vance. Nat Pendleton adds some humor. Mostly forgettable.

Edmund Lowe making his only screen appearance as S. S. Van Dine's dilettante wealthy sleuth Philo Vance in The Garden Murder Case is a fruitful one.
