The Phantom Light (1935)

After a lighthouse keeper is murdered under mysterious circumstances, a series of strange shipwrecks and disappearances follow. A "phantom" light is consistently seen near the dead man's lighthouse along the Welsh shoreline, but lady detective Hale along with a navy man and another lighthouse keeper discover that a group of investors are behind the crimes. Balanced with good proportions of suspense, humor, and atmosphere, this minor feature rises above many budget restrictions as intelligent entertainment. One of the many programmers Powell directed in the 1930s.
