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.


Critical reception

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]
