Review: ‘The Seventh Victim’

A particularly poor script is the basis for the ills besetting this mystery melodrama. Even the occasional good performance can't offset this minor dualer.

A particularly poor script is the basis for the ills besetting this mystery melodrama. Even the occasional good performance can’t offset this minor dualer.

Tom Conway has the lead, and while he’s generally a satisfactory performer, he, too, can’t extricate himself from the maze of circumstances that abound in this totally unbelievable hocus-pocus about a strange Greenwich Village coterie.
