Paul Temple Returns is a 1952 British crime film directed by Maclean Rogers and starring John Bentley, Patricia Dainton and Peter Gawthorne.[1] Known in the U.S. as Bombay Waterfront, [2] it was the fourth and last in the series of Paul Temple films, although the character was revived for the BBC television series Paul Temple in 1969.[3]


Aspiring novelist and amateur detective Paul Temple begins investigating the case of a famous unsolved murder and ends up in a mansion full of snakes. With the aid of his wife Steve, he eventually solves the murder, and gets renown for his newest book as well. [4]


Critical reception[edit]

TV Guide called the film a "standard murder mystery," [5] and Britmovie agreed, adding, "b-movie director Maclean Rogers keeps the story moving at a brisk pace and makes good use of exterior locations." [6]
