Yes, I agree that in Vance's reconstruction it says the killer saw Archer from Sir Thomas's building which does not seem plausible and which is never explained...it is a plot flaw that I think some commentators who have written about this film mention seems totally screwy (Jon Tuska in his "Detective in Hollywood"/"In Manors and Alleys" book? -- my copy is not accessible here so cannot check to make sure).

I kind of felt the same way; but remember raymond saying he had a dinner date with her that night, but yet she shows up at the kennel with sir thomas; plus the killer sees that archer is alive from sir thomas's room? :o

Is not really explicity revealed in film but Archer Coe is the guilty party to everyone in the film who expresses an opinion and I do not think Raymond Wrede had a motive to do so whereas Archer Coe did to ensure his dog won the competition and he is just a nasty guy...Chris.

Good question!  I haven't seen this movie in many years.  I'll try to watch it this weekend and look at that aspect again.

i was wondering if anybody would guess who killed sir thomas's dog in the movie THE KENNEL MURDER CASE?
Was it Archer Coe or Raymond Wrede?

Every 4 years I pop in CC at the Olympics, for my own opening ceremonies. Layne Tom was so funny in this film. I wish they had used him more often. ...Ed K.

This is the only movie that I watch on a particular date, and it's only because Lee Chan mentions that it is August 25th early in the film.  Otherwise, I have no particular order to watching movies, and I occasionally watch a Chan film or other old mystery movie on any day.

I am surprised that you have a set date to watch certain chan movies. i usually watch them in order from oldest to newest
 ;D
Interesting.  I usually pop one in the player Saturday morning, but just choose it at random, depending on my mood.  Like if I'm a Torso Murders kind of mood, it's Shadows Over Chinatown. :D
