Three Silent Men is a 1940 British crime film directed by Thomas Bentley and starring Sebastian Shaw, Derrick De Marney, Patricia Roc and Arthur Hambling. A pacifist surgeon must operate to save the life of the inventor of a deadly weapon of war, and when the inventor dies, the surgeon becomes prime suspect.
Pacifist surgeon Sir James Quentin (Sebastian Shaw) operates on Zaroff (Meinhart Maur), the inventor of a lethal weapon to be used against the Allies in the war. When Zaroff is discovered dead from an excess of ether, Quentin is immediately suspected. To clear her father's name, Quentin's daughter Pat (Patricia Roc), and her boyfriend Captain Mellish (Derrick De Marney), search for the real murderer.
TV Guide gave the film two out of five stars, calling it, "Badly written, though the suspense makes it entertaining."
