Gaston Leroux's famous murder mystery.
11 July 2005 | by See all my reviews

Gaston Leroux was one of the best writers of detective stories and his "yellow room" is an interesting case of murder in an enclosed place.

Unfortunately this movie was made at the beginning of the talkies and we can feel it.Huguette Duflos's playing seems histrionic and ludicrous today.On the other hand,Roland Toutain,who was to serve as a foil to romantic young leads (notably Jean -Pierre Aumont in "l'équipage" and "la porte du large" ) ,before playing a prominent part in Jean Renoir's "the rules of the games" at the end of the thirties,is perfectly cast as Rouletabille ,Leroux's equivalent of Poirot or Holmes.

Leroux's novel was a two-part story.The second part,"le parfum de la dame en noir" was filmed with the same cast the following year.It's more melodramatic ,and Rouletabille will learn a lot of things about his mysterious birth.
