In this film based on S.S. Van Dine's detective novel, quick-witted private investigator Philo Vance (Basil Rathbone) is in search of a cryptic killer. The body of Joseph Cochrane Robin is discovered pierced by an arrow, with a note that contains a snippet of the nursery rhyme "Who Killed Cock Robin," which is curiously signed "The Bishop."
