The Great Profile at his best
2 April 2002 | by (Islamabad, Pakistan) – See all my reviews

The Great Profile - John Barrymore - appears in this semi-noirish silent crime meller. While the picture may be dated (as silent movies go), Barrymore is simply spellbinding.

This was before drink destroyed his looks and concentration, and he looks simply magnificent - certainly the most handsome silent movie star at a time when a chocolate face was the preeminent criteria for movie stardom.

Barrymore is a the only reason viewers may have for seeing this film, but it is reason enough.
