Synopsis:
Identical twins are the focus of this murder mystery. One of them is committed to an asylum after a broke off love affair convinces her that she is in love with Lancelot from Arthurian legend. The murderer plots to have her sprung from the asylum and then blamed for the killings so that he gets the girl's money.

Indexer Notes

Previously credited to Jimmy Thompson (with a question mark) - but after an exhaustive study of Thompson's work for Timely, we can definitely say this is not Thompson.
