There are in fact several different versions.
The two earliest films (The Malpas Mystery and Marriage of Convenience) use a slow tempo flute based version; sounds very 'wistful'
Then we went onto a slow guitar based version, until circa 1963 when it went up tempo; of which, again there are a couple of different versions; one more 'twangy' and one more 'bassy'
The later films have their own title music (Act of Murder, with the yummy Justine Lord, Change Partners, Game for Three Losers, The Main Chance, Dead Man's Chest, Strangler's Web, Never Mention Murder, Downfall, and We Shall See)
