2. A Night of Terror (1937)
Also known as Love from a Stranger, A Night of Terror was adapted from an Agatha Christie story about a lottery winner who breaks up with her fiancé to marry a fortune hunter who proves to be dangerous. Britten, who was paid £200 - roughly £40,000 in today's money - was reportedly not happy with his score.
