Guy Kibbee is Jim Hanvey, a retired rather bumbling but wise cracking detective. He is called upon to find some stolen emeralds, only the man who is thought to have stolen them Don (Tom Brown) and his beau Joan (Lucie Kaye) turn up at his home and admit it.   This rather wretched murder mystery movie has only one thing going for it: C. Aubrey Smith in a rather unusual role for him, that of Jim Hanvey, the detective character created by Octavus Roy Cohen. Although the credits don’t mention it, but Curtain at Eight, the movie, was based on Cohen’s book The Backstage Mystery (Appleton, ), and.
