Fluttery, mousy, little Mr. Pinkerton, now widowed and, unsuspected by his tenants, a wealthy householder, is still unable to mind his own affairs. He noses right into the romance of an American ex-G.I. and an English girl, becomes the focus of suspicion when his curiosity gets too strong and finally with his friend. Bull, of Scotland Yard unearths more than murder. Genteel and pleasing whodunit.
