Green for Danger (1946): Interesting title for a black-and-white whodunit.

An off-beat inspector from Scotland Yard (Alistair Sim)* investigates the surgical death of a postman and the murder of an OR nurse at a remote English hospital. The suspects are soon limited to 5 overdramatic medical personnel2 of whom deliver a priceless over-the-top sequence of mad laughter, followed by face slap, followed by hysterical sobbing.

* Think precursor to Columbo.

The usual HT to KTG.

  1. I’m telling all my friends: if you see only one movie containing a hysterical laughter/face slap/hysterical crying scene this year…make it this one. Two slapping palms up!
