1. A rare example of a thirties British film where the killer gets away with the murder!.
2. Aileen Marson died in 1939 giving birth to her daughter Margaret. In 2005 Tony Reypert of Buckingham Film Services screened this film for Margaret who was visiting from South Africa. In fact we traced some of her mother's films and I produced DVD copies of these and my 9.5mm transfers of "The Green Pack", "Passing Shadows" and "Ten Minute Alibi" for her.
3. "The Green Pack" was the last play written by Edgar Wallace. In 1932 it had just opened at Wyndhams Theatre in London's West End when the author died in Hollywood where he had started work on the scenario for "King Kong". He had, however, discussed with his secretary, Robert Curtis, the lines on which he intended to write a book based on the play. After Wallace's death, the volume was published as "told by Robert Curtis".
