The Philo Vance Murder Case Collection
Philo Vance was one of America's premiere fictional detectives of the early 20th century. His popularity waned with the coming of World War Two, but his stylish ways were all the rage with mystery fans who craved his sophisticated approach to a good murder.

This collection from Warner Archive includes 6 films, with 6 different actors portraying Philo Vance. The supporting cast of character in these 6 films is impressive - Leila Hyams, Delmer Daves (who would become a reknowned director), Mary Astor, Eugene Pallette, Etienne Girardot, Margaret Lindsay, Lyle Talbot, Rosalind Russell, Louise Fazenda, Virginia Bruce, H.B. Warner, Margot Stevenson, Jimmy Conlin. Some of the characters (and actors) travel through different movies - District Attorney Markham, Coroner Dr. Doremus, Detective Ernest Heath. Calling Philo Vance starts like a wartime espionage thriller, but then turns into a remake of The Kennel Murder Case with a noir bend.
