Miss Tulip Stays the Night is a 1955 British comedy crime film directed by Leslie Arliss and starring Diana Dors, Patrick Holt, Jack Hulbert and Cicely Courtneidge.[1] The screenplay concerns a crime writer and his wife who stay at a country house, where a mysterious corpse appears.


A novelist (Patrick Holt) and his wife (Diana Dors) are sleeping peacefully in their new cottage when a mysterious older lady (Cicely Courtneidge) arrives, apparently stranded in a storm. She hands the writer her gun and some jewellery for safe-keeping, and asks for a bed for the night. Unfortunately, someone shoots her during the night and the author is accused of the crime. He is forced to turn detective to defend himself.

TV Guide called the film "badly done on all counts";[2] whereas The Digital Fix wrote, "Miss Tulip manages to combine comedy and murder with efficient ease".[3]
