precode Ronald Colman
8 August 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Ronald Colman and Fay Wray star in "The Unholy Garden," a 1931 film that is darn strange.

A fugitive from justice (Colman) winds up at a hotel in the Algerian desert where all the other thieves and killers hang out. Among them is lovely Fay Wray and her blind father. Word is the old man is hiding a great deal of money, and the thieves want it. Colman manages to become their leader, but his agenda is somewhat different from theirs.

Ronald Colman is delightful as Barrington Hunt, escaped con - fast talking, debonair, and charming. Wray is beautiful as the vulnerable, despairing Camille de Jonghe, who feels that her life will never change.

The atmosphere is marvelous - one really feels like they're in an Algerian hotel where danger lurks. Worth seeing for Colman and Wray.
