Who's Guilty? (1945) is a Columbia film serial. It was the 28th of the 57 serials released by that studio. Who's Guilty? was a rare attempt at a whodunit mystery film in serial form.


Bob Stewart is called in to investigate the murder of Henry Calvert, a wealthy businessman, with a wide variety of suspects waiting for their inheritance.


Critical reception

In the opinion of Cline, Robert Kent, as Police Investigator Bob Stewart was the only sane characterisation. The serial was a "complicated melange of victims and suspects...[Other characters] seemed lost in a swirl of plots, counterplots and cross plots that none of them could understand."[1]
