    A Very Dark Trio

    A Very Dark Trio

    In this episode of Attaboy Clarence...
    Film Festival news!
    A trio of very dark tales featuring terrible dilemmas at their core…
    First up, did the professor kill his pretty young student when she threatened to reveal their ‘PERSONAL AFFAIR (1953’?
    Just how deep does a sister’s love for her brother go, and what is the terrible secret behind the ‘DOUBLE DOOR (1934)’?
    A detective falls foul of the most fatal of femmes, but with everything on the line, is there enough good in him to do the right thing in ‘NIGHT EDITOR (1946)’?
    Radio entertainment comes straight from the Night Editor’s desk!
