Grimes, the sisters' housekeeper, refuses to let Gillson talk to the sisters. Later, when the sisters' beloved cat takes ill, Mrs. Grimes insists on driving them to town in their horse-and-buggy outfit. An accident occurs on the way to town and the sisters are killed. At the reading of the will, everyone is surprised and shocked at the sisters' stipulations regarding their fortune.
Reviews of the Scattergood Survives a MurderGuy Kibbee stars as Scattergood Baines in another outing, well directed by Christy Cabanne. This time it is a murder mystery: two eccentric old ladies have died, leaving their fortune to their cat, and suddenly murders begin to happen...
The Scattergood Baines series, from a series of stories by Clarence Buddington Kelland, never raises its head above its B roots, but the scripts are well written -- this one is particularly good -- and contains a wealth of character actors, including Florence Lake -- best known for playing Edgar Kennedy's wife in his series of shorts for RKO -- Willie Best as Scattergood's shop assistant, and the dependable B lead and A support, Wallace Ford. There's also a nice subplot as John Archer, new owner of the weekly newspaper, tries to make a go of it and romance Margeret Hayes.
It's all very pleasantly managed, and the mystery plot is well handled. Not a classic by any means, it times in at just over an hour and is a fine time-killer.
