Jimmie Brand is a police reporter suffering from shattered nerves. Sent away to recuperate, what should he see but a beautiful girl murder a man in broad daylight? It’s love and a busman’s holiday from then on in. Witty, bright and modern, The Hill Park Mystery is a great example of the best of Danish silent cinema – a real charmer.

Digitally restored in 2001 by Danske Filminstitut from the original nitrate negative.
