Suave private investigator, Norman Conquest, (Tom Conway) intercepts a secret message and meets a beautiful but foreign blonde lady, Nadina Rodin (Eva Bartok), in room 605 of the Park Plaza hotel. But when Conquest wakes up in the room the next morning he is lying next to a dead body. With the mysterious blonde nowhere to be seen, Conquest soon becomes the police's number one suspect with Inspector Williams (Sid James) following his every move.

In order to clear his name, Conquest enlists the help of Pixie Everard (Joy Shelton), but the going gets rough when he discovers that the murder is connected to a stash of stolen diamonds. As gun-happy gangs of communists and Nazi sympathisers turn up the heat, Conquest has to solve the murder whilst staying one step ahead of both the gangs and the police.

 Mystery melodrama...could have been made into a series.

After watching Park Plaza i looked on the Internet to see whether 'Tom Conway' starred in any more films as 'Norman Conquest'. To my surprise he didn't. The film itself is similar to that of 'The Thin Man' series...arguably not as good of course but all the same, had it's own unique feel. Even down to what would have been the signature tune, if they had made more.

Tom Conway plays the suave private investigator very well, something that audiences became quite accustom to over the years.

One disappointment to mention would be that of Sid James who we've all come to love for his roles in the Carry on Movies and many of his other comedy performances. For once i wasn't inspired. On the other hand i shouldn't stereotype the man. I can't help but feel that if his script was snappier & that bit funnier, he would have made the film that much better.

Overall, the film was a little slow paced and fairly predictable and i although i would watch the film again, i wouldn't say it was any better than a 6/10.
